Drag tabs between browsers Web Browsers
If you ever have a page open in one browser and want to open it in another browser, simply drag the URL (grabbing the favicon to the left of the URL is the easiest way) to an open spot in the tab bar (the tab bar needs to be visible to do this). If you want to overwrite another tab's page, drag it onto that tab. (You can also use this to duplicate tabs in the same browser.)

Dragging into Camino's toolbar is the same as Safari. Shiira always makes a new tab, no matter where you drag the URL. Firefox, Opera, and OmniWeb both behave the same as Safari and Camino.

[kirkmc adds: You can also simply drag the URL (whether from the favicon, the actual URL in the Address Bar, or any link) to a browser window to open the page. This is especially practical for web designers who need to view pages in different browsers.]

I'm really anxious to be able to drag tabs around and to different windows in Safari come 10.5.

Safari's DEBUG menu also has an "Open With" option to open the current page in another broswer.

Or you can drag the URL onto the browser's icon on the Dock. It will open in either a new tab or new window depending on the browser settings.

Or use OmniWeb and just drag the tabs from one window to another. If you want, you can even select more than one tab (the normal shift- and command-clicking) and drag a group from one window to another.

Dragging a link from Firefox to Safari doesn't work--but doing the same does work in WebKit.

Actually, you can drag a Firefox tab to the Safari dock Icon to open a URL

Dragging a link from SeaMonkey or FireFox to an open Safari window or to the Dock icon open the link in Safari.

I'm using Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. What OS version are you on?
