Drag-and-drop file upload seems hazardous

It seems pretty hazardous to have the entire browser window as a drag-and-drop target for uploading files.

I accidentally started uploading some 9000 files with this, and I’m not even sure how it happened.  (I obviously didn’t commit it :slight_smile: )

It was actually pretty unnerving to see a huge list of my files being vacuumed into the cloud because of an errant trackpad-drag.


It doesn’t seem to be a huge problem - these days a lot of sites use it and files will never be published without consent. Also, you can always cancel the upload. If you’re still bothered by it, you could disable the D&D functionality for your browser.
