STR_1:
1. Open url [1]
2. Move mouse between letters "s" and "d" on the page, move mouse (vertically) below text "asdf"
3. hold left mouse button to start text selection, move mouse pointer to the left and right a bit

AR:  Text is selected far away from mouse pointer (part of word "hello" becomes selected)
ER:  No text should be selected

Tested on Windows 7 x32 and Mac OS X 10.10 and I see what is the issue here I have the same actual result. I have the same behavior on Chrome and Safari. From my point of view this is not a bug, but I will assign to a component, I think the appropriate one, and see what is there opinion about this.
