Highlighting text and be able to drag [or click and hold for links] and drop the text [ or link] within the view port and searches [or opens] in a new (background) tab.

Please add a feature known as "super drag and drop". It is a killer feature first popularized by Maxthon web browser. It is kind of like a unique gesture-style function that lets you create new tabs from certain content, and it is invoked by simply dragging certain content a few pixels in any direction on screen and then releasing. Here is what it lets you do...
- Drag a hotlinked text to open the link in a new tab.
- Drag selected text to paste and go into the address bar in a new tab.
- Drag a hotlinked image to open the link in a new tab.
- Drag a non-hotlinked image to open the image in a new tab.
NOTE: Please also add a toolbar button to let us quickly toggle it on/off and to visually indicate the on/off status of it. Toggling it off is sometimes necessary to prevent it from getting accidently invoked when we try to select text from hotlinked text.
