You should turn this into a browser extension for easy access! Great tool, makes life a lot faster for me.

Thanks! At first I tried to make it a normal web application, but failed. Doing this requires a file to be written to the host filesystem in order for file drag-out to work with all apps. It also requires access to native drag and drop API which is not exposed to the browser environment. Therefore, I couldn't implement it as a browser extension.
