In Google Chrome and Safari, use the -webkit-user-drag style property for similar functionality.
JavaScript page for this attribute: draggable. You can find other example(s) there.

This example illustrates the use of the draggable attribute:
        .dragTest {
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnDragStart (event) {
            event.dataTransfer.setData ("text/plain",;
            return true;
    The first division element is draggable, the second one is not. Try to drag the first one and drop it into the text field.
    <br /><br />
    Division 1.
    <div class="dragTest" style="-webkit-user-drag: element; -webkit-user-select:none;" 
        draggable="true" ondragstart="return OnDragStart (event)">A draggable division element.</div>
    <br /><br />
    Division 2.
    <div class="dragTest" 
        ondragstart="return false;">A non-draggable division element.</div>
    <br /><br />
    Text field:<br />
    <textarea rows="5"></textarea>
