Chrome: Quick bookmark a link by dragging it to bookmar bar

One of the things I miss when switching from Firefox to Chrome is the ability to quick bookmark a tab by dragging the tab directly to the bookmark toolbar. What’s nice about this is that you can place the new bookmark at the exact location that you want on the bookmark bar, even within a directory. And it’s quick, for sure!

Unfortunately, Chrome does not support this shortcut (as for now). But here’s a workaround that may be just as fast:

Click to the end of the address bar to select the whole url you want to bookmark, and you can drag *that link* to the bookmark bar.
