Description

The browser tab control has a number of drag and drop issues:
1. You can't drag from a tab
2. There is no drop feedback for items dragged onto a tab
3. There is no drop feedback for items dragged onto the space beside the tabs
(dropping here makes a new tab)
4. There is nothing to stop 'redundant' drops (from the tab to its content area,
from the proxy icon to the selected tab, from the proxy icon to the content area).

I plan to fix these.

Fixed. I did the following:

1. You can now drag from tabs, by clicking and dragging on the icon in a tab.
2. When dragging over tabs, drop feedback is shown by an alpha-blended gray
rectangle over the tab item.
3. When dragging over the tab background, drop feedback is shown with a tinged
rectangle in the area behind the tabs. (When tabs are not showing, there is a
strip just under the bookmarks toolbar which can act as a drop target for such
drags too. This is probably a bug. There is also a strip along the bottom of the
content area, over the status bar.)
4. Drags from a tab into its content area are refused. 
5. Drags of the proxy icon onto the active tab are refused.
6. Drags of the proxy icon into the content area for the same window are refused.

way cool. ;)

the highlight of the tab bar confused me when i first saw it until i tried it.
maybe drawing an alpha blended new tab might be more clear as to the result of
the drag? just a thought.
