    im not sure if this's posted before, or if it's new in .4.9

    when you're viewing a folder (in Finder) and you want to move it to somewhere else, what u gonna do? most of the time, you would back up one level, and drag it to the new destination, right?
    but you dont really have to. notice on the title bar, there's a folder icon with its name next to it. you can click and drag that icon to the new location, and save yourself a few clicks (this also works with spring loaded thingy.

    Yep, this works in lots of apps. Typically, if there is an icon in the title bar, you can drag or option-drag the document around from there.

    i'm always amazed to find features that have been around awhile. a couple months ago, i learned i could cmd-c programs/files/folders and paste them to other locations without having to drag them around.
