The Internet Explorer team at Microsoft today as on July 27, announced that "HTML5 Drag and Drop is now available in Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 2".
"One last new and really neat part of HTML5 drag and drop is the ability to drag a file from the desktop to a Web site. When you drop a file on a Web site, it can read the file contents and use the file within the site. The Magnetic Poetry demo uses this feature to create small image previews on the refrigerator. Drag an image file onto the refrigerator and you will get the preview," informs Sharon Newman, Program Manager, Internet Explorer.
"You may also notice that when you drop a magnet, it rotates. The amount of rotation is based on how close to the middle you grab the magnet. If you grab close to the middle it will drop fairly flat but if you grab on the edges it will rotate more. This creates a more natural look," added Newman.
HTML5 drag and drop is available today in IE10 Platform Preview 2.
