SharePoint 2013 – drag & drop file upload limitations

Drag and drop of files from your desktop to SharePoint document library in the browser window is a cool feature that is very much appreciated by many our clients. Unfortunately, this feature utilizes HTML5 and very much browser dependent.

Based on our tests, IE8 and IE9 does not support the drag and drop. However FF and Chrome seem to support this easily.
