Extends the function of the drag-and-drop mouse gesture so that it can be used to load URLs, do a web search of selected text on a page, or save an image on a page. Compatible with both Firefox and SeaMonkey.
This is the successor to the defunct SuperDragAndGo extension; it delivers the same functionality with a small footprint.

Tips & Tricks:
1) If you want the old SD&G behavior of opening a clickable link in a new tab instead of searching for the link text, there is an option that you can set in the addon's settings.
2) If you hold down [Ctrl] while drag-n-dropping an image, you can open the image in a new tab instead of saving it (if the save images option is enabled).
3) If you hold down [Shift] while drag-n-dropping, it will reverse reverse the foreground/background tab behavior for that drag (e.g., if your settings are to open in a background tab, holding [Shift] will open it in a foreground tab instead)
4) If you hold down [Alt] while dropping a URL, you will save the URL instead of opening it in a new tab.
5) If you hold down the [Ctrl] key when you drag-to-search, the search text will be copied to the clipboard. This can make it easier to subsequently use the browser's find-in-page feature to locate the search text in the search results that you get. (requires version 18.104.22.168 or newer)
