Drag, Drop and Go

Drag, Drop and Go

Do you use Gmail for all your e-mail needs? How about Firefox for all your Web browsing needs? Well, if you use both of those services, you’re going to absolutely love what I have for you today! It’s actually a Firefox extension that works just for Gmail. How cool is that?! It’s called “dragdropupload” and I’m telling you, it will make your Gmail experience a whole lot easier. Let’s check it out!

So, you know when you want to attach something to an e-mail you’re sending out, you have to go through the whole process of clicking the “Attach a file” link and then you have to browse through all your files just to find the single one you’re looking for. What a pain! But if you install dragdropupload, you’ll no longer have to go through that torture. That’s right, with dragdropupload, you can simply drag the files you want right to the attachment box.

For example, let’s say you want to send a Word document to one of your friends. To do that, just locate the file on your computer, drag it over and drop it on the “Attach a file” link in Gmail. It will automatically be added to your attachments and you can then type up a quick message and send it off. Just drag over as many files as you want and you’re all set. To download dragdropupload for yourself, just go here and click on the Download Now button. Once you do, you’ll never want to go back to the old way of e-mail attachments. Trust me!
