Yes please, I do need this feature. It's complicated to speak from "we" point of view, but I'm certain many would find transitioning from Chrome light years easier with this simple "choose your preference"-kind of option.
Programmers would literally need less than a minute to implement it since Opera is Chromium-based itself as I already had mentioned.
Tl;sr I want to be able to drag links horizontally, vertically etc. without selecting text in the link. Like in Google Chrome @juniorwmg
