A Microsoft developer has fixed a particularly annoying quirk in Google Chrome that can result in you accidentally losing your current tab.

When you need to upload a file to a website (if you’re adding an attachment to an email, for example, or using a PDF to Word converter), you’ll often be given the option to drag and drop it onto the page rather than browsing for it using File Explorer. It can be a real time-saver, but it also has the potential to go wrong.

If you accidentally drop your file outside the prescribed area, it will open in Chrome instead of being uploaded – and will appear in your current tab, taking you away from the site you were using.

In a best-case scenario, this is only a slight annoyance that can be resolved with a quick click of the back button. However, if you entered a lot of information into a form before trying to upload the file, you might have to start again from scratch. If you were doing something uploading a resume after completing a complex job application form, that could be incredibly frustrating.
