As observed by Ian Hickson (http://lists.whatwg.org/pipermail/whatwg-whatwg.org/2013-August/040484.html): 
> I've updated the spec. The trick is to check event.dataTransfer.dropEffect 
> in the dragend event; if it's "none" then the drag was canceled.
> 
> This works already in Chrome and Firefox for same-page drags; it also 
> works in Chrome for cross-app drags, but in Firefox for some reason you 
> always get "none" for cross-app drags currently. It does work for 
> cross-page (all within Firefox) drags in Firefox. (Tested on Mac.)
