Dragging a file from the Finder to Safari!

I found this tip at and I was so impressed, I had to share it with you. This tip works in both Leopard and Tiger. You must have Safari 3 installed if you are on Tiger though. When you are filling out an online form and you have to upload a file, there is often a "Choose File" button. When you click on it, you get a window similar to the open/save window where you can choose the file. You often have to go through many folders before getting to the right file. In Safari 3, it is much easier. You can drag a file from the desktop or anywhere in the Finder, all the way to the "Choose File" button.

Thanks for the tip!

WOW, that an amazing tip. That really should save time :) Just another, of many reasons to get a Mac.
I just was wondering what program, you use to record those videos?

Combine this tip with Quicksilver and uploading files should be super-fast. Sweet.

That's cool, I didn't know about it. I knew you could drag the file into the Open/Save drop-down though...I guess this saves even another click. :)

Of course this dropping files into attachment boxes and such is also doable in Firefox with an extension (dragdropupload), but it's nice to see that Safari does this by default.

Unfortunately, it looks like Firefox does not do this by default yet in the 3.0 version (still in beta right now). Maybe now that Safari does it, they will think about putting it into the browser by default instead of having to install an extension.
