Is there a way to drag&drop urls into a Dock folder?

I see that 10.5 will do this, but what about 10.4? Is there a 3rd party enhancement?

Before I would use f11 and then drag to my desktop but it can get really messy.

I now drag and drop into an OmniOutliner file - this is really cool but I have to swap windows on my laptop or use 2 monitors on my desktop.

How do you manage your urls?

I make bookmarks of the important ones and keep my bookmarks organized in Firefox. Periodically, I'll re-import the Firefox bookmarks into other browsers.

For stuff I'd like to look at later and then trash, I keep a "Read Me" folder on my Desktop. I drag files and URLs onto that folder and when it reaches 100 items (roughly every week or so), I sort through it.

So do you F11 to get to it or allow room on the side of your open windows?

It will be nice with 10.5 to just drag to the dock folder.

I have 2 monitors. I keep the folder in the upper left corner of the right-hand monitor so that even if I've got a document displayed at full-screen I can drag items into the folder.

But I also don't keep my windows zoomed to full-screen, except rarely when I'm editing graphics or video. There'd be plenty of room for the folder on the right side of the main monitor if I didn't use 2 monitors.

If you did something similar, you could also drag that folder into the Dock and immediately have hierarchical access to the items dropped into that folder.
