Google Docs finally gets drag-and-drop image support

Adding images to your Google Docs documents just got easier, thanks to some long-awaited drag-and-drop support. Docs users with current versions of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari can now drag images from your desktop right into a document. Google Docs already offered a few ways to get an image into a document -- browse your hard drive, enter a URL, or use Google Image search -- but none of them had the simplicity of drag-and-drop.

Google says that other browsers will get the feature as soon as they support it. I'm not sure why it wouldn't work on IE9 -- unless it's part of the ongoing battle between Docs and Microsoft Office -- but I'm betting drag-and-drop will hit Microsoft's browser sooner rather than later.
