YouTube has tapped into Google's ever expanding HTML5 revolution, by offering drag-and-drop video uploading onto the popular video hosting site.

Google also offers similar services within Gmail and Google Docs.

To make use of the new feature you'll need to be rocking the latest version of either Chrome or Firefox as it uses HTML5 APIs.
