Why When i started this project i couldn't find any add-on that allow dragging links, so i had to do it myself, my first add-on for Firefox.

One day a reviewer mentioned Glitter Drag, so i tested it, and i saw it was really well made, with a lot of customization options and much more effort put into it. I didn't find it earlier because he started implementing it one month later than me, so for these reasons, i have to recommend to use Glitter Drag instead of DragLinks and avoid doing the same work twice in favor of his add-on.

I hope you understand it, and thanks all for all the support and reviews!

The problem Opening links trying to keep the search results page, needs going back in history every time and many mouse clicks.
