Another exciting feature for Gmail, drag-and-drop your attachments!

 Another exciting feature from Google, and now it is for Gmail, the most popular email service over the internet.
New Gmail feature, which it claims will offer a quick and easy way to add attachments and related media to messages.
Chrome and Firefox 3.6 users can now drag-and-drop files into the email body when attaching them. This replaces the usual method of clicking the 'attach a file' option, and will be helpful for users who already have the associated folder open and a number of files to attach.
"Suppose I want to attach some files to an email, and I already have a folder open containing those files. I used to have to click 'Attach a file', find the photos, click them, etc. [Now] I can just drag and drop the files to attach them," said Google software engineer Adam de Boor in a blog post.

How does it work?
 Just login to your gmail account from Firefox or Chrome, and select compose email. Now, select any photo or document from your hard drive, drag and drop it into Gmail’s compose window.
 But, for sure, it won’t work with any version of Internet Explorer! It seems Google intentionally excluded IE from this feature, in order to drive IE users to their own product , Chrome.
