Drag Mac App Store and iTunes Store icons to web browser for easier browsing
Authored by: David Allen on Sep 17, '12 08:33:56AM

Where it opens in a tab in the browser depends on how you have the browser configured to behave regarding opening new tabs. When I drop the icon on Safari (my main browser) it opens a new tab.

But this is dope to know!!!!! This has opened up a new world of being able to post links to content in the iTunes stores that I did not know was available on the internet; books, music, video, podcasts, iTunes U, etc. And it makes it easy to get a web address for apps that I suggest to folks in the iTunes App Store and Mac App Store forums of the ASC. I osed to have a hard time finding the page, this takes seconds and it has worked every time!

Thanks, thanks, thanks.

Oh, and if you drop the icon on the Mail app, it opens a new message with the address pasted in it.

BTW, did I say gracias!

Getting the links isn't new; you've always been able to right-click and choose Copy Link. But I never thought of dragging them to a browser.

I'm just excited because I didn't know that either was possible. So I have been doing it the hard way with a Google, which can sometimes take awhile to find what you want.
