Drag and drop files to Safari's Choose File button Web Browsers
It's possible to drag and drop files to the Choose File button you'll see on some web sites -- like the one you'll see if you click the "Attach a File" button in Gmail. You do not have to click the Choose File button and then navigate the Open dialog; just drag and drop directly from the Finder to that button. This is quite handy when working with Gmail and attachments.

This is a very useful tip. However, it's a duplicate. I learned this from macosxhints some time ago: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20071106154003115

Alternatively you can click the 'choose file' button and then drag a file into the dialog box. This always made more sense to me.

There is also a plugin for Firefox to enable this:

It will also upload multiple attachments to certain sites, like gmail.
