Dragging images for opening in new tab?

  • Hi,

    in previous Opera versions (<= v12?) it was possible to drag an image to open it in a new tab (instead of right clicking):

    Opera6.ini [User Prefs] → enable drag=255

    I am missing this option in Opera Next / Developer / Beta. And do not find an option e.g. in opera:flags

    It's not possible to get this work in v28, isn't it?

    Thanks "again" 🙂

  • I'm use Opera 29 and if I drag an image to the tab bar it opens in a new tab. I don't know if it was possible in earlier versions as I never use that feature. Seeing as you can do the same thing in Chrome I doubt it was recently added though.

  • In the good old Opera versions <= 12 it was possible with the described entry. And just after "dragging" an image some pixels it was opened in a new tab.

    But dragging it onto the tab bar is a good workaround 😉
