New Drag and Drop Plug-in Released for Firefox

Today, RadWebTech released the xWinLib_dnd browser plug-in for Windows and Mac-based Firefox (and Mozilla-compatible) browsers. It works in conjunction with the company’s xWinLib JavaScript library.

Firefox Drag and Drop PluginOnce installed, the plug-in provides advanced drag and drop functionality for supporting web pages, including cross-domain drag and drop. Additionally, it adds a small icon to the bottom status bar of the browser with single-click access to a popup menu with a number of features.

xWinLib Drag and Drop Plug-in detectionThe first site to fully support the enhanced functionality is Scrapplet (www.scrapplet.com). The enhanced functionality makes it easy to mashup pages and web content with drag and drop ease.

The plug-in also includes a feature where users can recommend advanced drag and drop adoption by sites that have not currently implemented the ease of use provided by the enhancement.

Webmasters may contact the company directly (bizdev@scrapplet.com) for information about adding the RadWebTech drag and drop functionality to their own sites.

To get the plug-in, goto http://www.scrapplet.com using Firefox. The site’s home page will detect if the plug-in has not been installed and provide an installation link to install it.
