Drag and drop link idiosyncrasies with web browsers

Also, if you use more than one browser in parallel (I have to switch into Firefox or Camino for web development occasionally), you can drag a link into the browser window to open it. This only works if you drop it on the window itself (after Command+Tabbing to get there); dragging to the Dock icon doesn't seem to cut it.

Dock icons can only handle file objects.

You cannot, for instance, drag a clipping of text, or a url, onto a dock icon.

I came across this shortcoming of MacOSX when first using NewsFire...the developer informed me that this is not possible.
