View framed links in Safari outside the frame Web Browsers
If you click and drag a link that is in a frame to "pick it up," and then just drop it back in the browser window, you will view that link outside of the frame.

[Editor's note: Of course, the contextual menu works for this as well; control-click the link and select "Open Link in New Window." But if you don't want a new window, the drag/drop method described here is actually easier and faster!]

There's more to this hint than you think

This hint actually is more subtle than you think.

first when you open a link by dragging either to a new window or out-of-and-back-into the same window when it opens the snapback is activated.

when you just click on a link snapback is not set. thus this is cute way to use a mouse motion to activate snapback.

second, and I think that this is what the original post was trying to point out. you can shed the frame on the window without opening a new window. just drag the link-out-of-and-backinto the same window to remove the surrounding frame.

This also works in Internet Explorer 5.2.2 (and lower). Just drag something out of and back into a window.

For opening links in a new window you can also use command-click.
