<h2>What is DragToTab?</h2>
<p><em>DragToTab</em> is an extension that allows you to drag links, text or 
files on to the "New Tab" and "New Window" icon in the toolbar to open them in either a 
new tab or in a new window respectively. If the text contains a complete or partial 
URL, it will be opened.

<h2>Why use DragToTab?</h2>
<p><img src="drag_icon.gif" width="530" height="340" border="0" alt="Dragging a desktop icon into the browser window."></p>
<p>
When you drag files from the desktop to the browser window, you often don't want 
to disrupt your current web searches so, with this extension, you can 
choose to open them in a new tab or a new window in one easy step.</p>
<p style="text-align:center"><img src="drag_text.gif" width="349" height="264" border="0" alt="Dragging a typed URL to the new tab button."></p>
<p>
Sometimes webpages print URLs without turning 
them into clickable links. You cannot open them in new tabs 
because you cannot "middle-click" or "ctrl-click" on a text selection. But with 
this extension, you can drag the text selection on to the toolbar icons to 
either open them in a new tab or in a new window.
</p>
<p><img src="drag_link.gif" width="615" height="579" border="0" alt="Dragging a link from one browser window into the new tab button of another browser window."></p>
<p>
Sometimes you come across a link that you want to open as a tab but in another 
existing window. With this extension, you can then drag the link to the new tab 
toolbar icon of the other window to open it there as a new tab.
</p>

<h2>Other Information:</h2>
<p>
<ul><li>Use the Shift key to toggle whether new tabs are opened in the background 
or opened in front.</li>
<li>Middle-click on the New Tab button to open the current webpage in a new tab.</li>
<li>Only Firefox 0.9+ is supported as of now because only Firefox has a 
New Tab and New Window toolbar button.</li>
<li>This extension is an implementation of enhancement bug <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=179845" style="text-decoration:line-through">#179845</a>.</li>
<li>This extension will not be ported to Firefox 1.1, because Firefox 1.1 
will have support for this by default.</li>
