Drag Safari Bookmarks Bar items directly into folders Apps
After switching from Camino to Safari (temporarily; I'm still not really convinced that Safari is really "the better browser"), I was quite annoyed by the fact that you're unable to directly move a bookmark from the Bookmarks Bar into one of the folders on the Bookmarks Bar. When you drag an item, you can only reorder it.

Finally I discovered the following trick: If you first drag the bookmark off the Bookmarks Bar area (by dragging down first, instead of horizontally -- but keep dragging; if you release the mouse after dragging down, your dragged bookmark will vanish in a poof), and then drag it back onto the Bookmarks Bar, you're able to move it into a folder. I don't know, whether this is a bug or done on purpose, but at least it works.

This is very similar to this hint, I mean, in the way the dragging is performed. I think it is more an usability feature (different dragging types) than a bug.

It's been like that since Safari 2. Nothing new.

This is a "feature", I was stumped with the behavior at first too, and filed a bugreport (rdar://4157542), and they came back with the "solution" above as well.

It appears to be consistent with the behaviour of tabs: if you drag a tab downwards first they can be moved to other windows or reordered within the same window; if you drag a tab sideways first it can only be reordered within that window.
