Drag Tabs From Google Chrome To Firefox

Reader Scott writes in with a useful tip: you can drag any link directly from Chrome to a new tab in Firefox, or the other way around.

Most Lifehacker readers already know this, but you can drag tabs from Firefox directly into Chrome as a new tab, but you can't do the same from Chrome to Firefox—unless you drag the bookmark from the tab instead. Scott's tip, in his own words:

When you want to open a Firefox tab in Chrome, you can simply drag the tab right over to Chrome—but to open a Chrome tab in Firefox, you need to grab the star icon and drag instead. The same thing works for both bookmarks and links—in fact, you can grab the link from one browser and drop it on the bookmarks bar of the other.

It's not exactly rocket science for most Lifehacker readers, but it's a useful tip for anybody both browsers on a regular basis. If you want to take your Chrome skills to the next level, be sure and check out the power user's guide to Google Chrome.


    I would also like to know what the theme is... I think there is an extension that makes Firefox Aero-compatible but I haven't seen that blue bar before - anyone know?

    The extension for transparency is called Glasser. Get it here:


    One question... who uses multiple browser software? I mean, both firefox and chrome have tabbed browsing for a single window compact experience for surfing the net. The world we live in...
