Imitating the third week of April, Google seems to have taken this week to implement new features in their services. The announced today was the option to drag attachments from files Gmail out of the message. It is now no longer need to open an image and save it or downloading a document. At least not if you’re using a compatible browser with new tags HTML5.
Just click the attachment icon and drag it to a folder or to the desktop. In the case of image documents, just click and drag the photo thumbnail. Google reduced to a mouse click something that led to two clicks! A significant savings in time and energy. Thanks Google!
As predicted, this feature uses specific features of HTML5 language. However, it still does not work in Firefox, only in Chrome. The reverse option, drag files into a message in Gmail, has been available since May.
