I'm a newb ubuntu user, coming from Windows. On Windows, I could pick up one chrome tab, alt-tab to find another chrome window, and place it there.
I find that this doesn't work on ubuntu/gnome. Can it be made to work?

Alt-Tab does not seem to work in Ubuntu/Unity (Compiz) during Drag'n'Drop:
Actually you can. Same way as you are mentioning here. Already tried on Chrome 10, 11 and 12-Dev.
I even had 4 Chrome windows opened. Picked a chrome tab and that puppy started going/dragging from one windows to another. I recommend making sure you have ubuntu up to date (Using 10.10 here) and Chrome also updated (They make an update every 3 to 7 days).
BTW I did not know of this until you asked. Thanks for the trick which i confirm works on Ubuntu 10.10.
