Open Safari links in other tabs via drag and drop Web Browsers
I've just realized this accidentally: When you drag and drop a hyperlink in Safari onto another (not the active) tab, the linked page will be loaded within that tab. I have no idea if that is useful or not.

if you have safari set to utilize tabs, why not just command-click the link instead of drag-n-drop

With this you can use a previously used tab, instead of launching a new tab. I know that throughout a day of command-clicking I can get quite a lot of tabs open, many of which I don't really need anymore.

Of course I probably won't change my behavior as for me command click and command-w are faster than drag and drop, but it may be useful to a lot of people who aren't as keyboard centric.

Note that you don't have to have a tab already open. As long as you have the Tab Bar showing, you can drag and drop a link there and it will open in a new tab. You have to be a little bit careful to avoid the Bookmarks Bar.

You can do this in Panther too, by the way.

Other browsers too

This feature is also available in Camino and Firefox, and probably other browsers too.
