Google Chrome 85 as part of its big update is going to make the digital life less painful for people who often drag and drop image files to a browser window. Frustrating you to the core, it always opens an image preview much to your dismay. Chrome 85 supports file drop as part of the upcoming update on all Chromium based browsers.
The information was announced by Eric Lawrence, developer of Microsoft Edge, which is a Chromium based browser. The Windows browser will also see a global release as part of the monthly update and it will make it easier for you to upload an image.
The drag and drop feature may sound extremely simple but people often tend to do it. When you try to click on an image and leave it on a browser, to be uploaded to social media it will simply open a preview. The entire process becomes really frustrating when you don’t have a choice but to download the image, click on the upload button and do it one more time which extends the process time by a considerable period.
Another common issue that developers faced was the websites wouldn’t support this feature. Even though, most social media websites would want you to upload a picture and showcase your life, they wouldn’t make it easier on desktops and laptops. Compared to a desktop version of Facebook or Instagram, smartphone apps are much easier to use and more intuitive.
Losing access to a website that you are already working on will be difficult to manage because if there is work on it, not saved could easily get lost in this chaos. Chrome 85 supports file drop which is yet another step towards perfection and to make productive users’ life easier on the desktop platform. It is expected to be available in the following weeks.
