That it is significantly less convenient to find that 3 pixel wide
area where you can drag the frame, then move it to the end of the
screen. Also it doesn't seem to be possible in Chrome. Also there's no
visual indicator showing this is possible, so the average user might
never be aware of it.

I have to mention though, my current code doesn't seem to work in
Opera. But I guess that is only a matter of some bug fixing.
