If a drag motion stays within a link, it should be interpreted as a click on the link. This would reduce a common problem where you think you've clicked a link, but you notice that the browser isn't loading anything, and you have to click again. Steps to reproduce: 1. Mouse down within a link. 2. Move the cursor 5 or more pixels *without leaving the link*. 3. Mouse up. Result: At step 2, "hand" cursor changed to "no drop" cursor. At step 3, nothing happened, but the cursor went back to "hand". Expected: At step 2, "hand" cursor should remain. At step 3, the link should be followed.
Recognizing a click as a click is the job of the operating system. The "move X pixels before detecting a drag"-threshold is a setting in the OS. WONTFIX
