If I want to replace part of an URL, click+drag is less efficient than
just plain drag. And there are already plenty of other ways to select
the whole URL (click the little button, press ctrl-l).

The only time it is more efficient is if you want to use the mouse to
select the URL and then replace the address. In all other cases it is
less efficient.
