I dis­cov­ered a new short­cut in Fire­fox 1.5 today. In the pre­vi­ous ver­sion of Fire­fox, I used the Super­Dra­gAnd­Go exten­sion to open links in new tabs. It turns out that in Fire­fox 1.5, you can drag a link onto the tab tool­bar and a new link will open auto­mat­i­cal­ly. I love it when Fire­fox inte­grates func­tion­al­i­ty from my favourite exten­sions (like miniT).

On a relat­ed note, drag­ging select­ed text into the search box in the Google tool­bar will auto­mat­i­cal­ly bring up a Google search page for the select­ed text.
