I'm using Google Chrome on my work but at home I use Vivaldi. I really miss a feature there: you can drag a tab to the bookmarks in order to save it.

However, Google Chrome only creates a new window if its dragged which is very annoying, so, is there a way to do this behavior? (natively or via extension)

I found the solution:

You can't drag the tab directly to the bookmarks but if you drag the URL bar it works perfectly!

    For me it's not the bar, it's the text in the bar, but your hint helped my very very much. I may call this bad design by Chrome...

  • When I've tested lately, dragging on the text doesn't work, but I can drag the lock icon to the left of the URL down into the bookmark bar (or into any bookmark folder that's on the bar).
