IE7 - Dragging and dropping text in the search box

    The Google toolbar that I have used w/IE6 prior to my new IE7 install allows
    me to drag text and drop it on the search textbox to search instantly for the
    terms. I don't even have to click the search button - drag, drop, and
    results.

    Could this ability please be added to the search box feature in IE7?

    Also, the Google toolbar creates buttons for each search term on the toolbar
    that I can click to search for that term on the current page - also a great
    feature that should be considered for future updates to the IE7 search box
    feature.

    Until these features are added, I have to keep using my Google toolbar, and
    I'd really like to just use the search feature built-in to IE7 to keep the
    toolbar area clear.

    I *love* IE7, by the way. Beefing up the search feature and making it so I
    can browse in full-screen in two or more windows and alt-tab between them
    will make it even better! It's excellent you took the Firefox-esque tabs
    idea and incorporated into IE7 - taking the good ideas and making them better
    is what Microsoft does best.
