Notes

dataTransfer.items only supported by Chrome.

Currently no browser supports the dropzone attribute.

Firefox supports any kind of DOM elements for .setDragImage. Chrome must have either an HTMLImageElement or any kind of DOM elements attached to the DOM and within the viewport of the browser for .setDragImage.

  1. Partial support refers to no support for the dataTransfer.files or .types objects

  2. Partial support refers to not supporting .setDragImage

  3. Partial support refers to limited supported formats for dataTransfer.setData/getData.

Bugs

  • In Chrome, DataTransfer.addElement is not implemented. There is no other way to implement a draggable object, that updates during the drag due to some other circumstances (e.g. changes color on a valid drop spot), as it is just a static image if addElement is not supported.

  • In Firefox, the dragstart event does not fire on button elements. This effectively disables drag and drop for button elements.

  • In IE9-10 draggable attribute could be effectively applied for link and image elements. For div and span elements you should call 'element.dragDrop()' to start drag event.

  • In Safari 8, after setting event.dataTransfer.dropEffect, the value in the drop event is always 'none'

  • Safari doesn't implement the DragEvent interface. It adds a dataTransfer property to MouseEvent instead. See WebKit bug #103423.

  • Chrome strips out newlines from text/uri-list see bug

  • Reportedly, using "text/plain" as the format for event.dataTransfer.setData and event.dataTransfer.getData does not work in IE9-11 and causes a JS error. The format needs to be "text", which seems to work in all the mainstream browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, IE9-11, Edge).

  • In Firefox, the dragging near the edge of scrollable regions does not cause scrolling
