From: Paul Mison Date: 11:30 on 12 Aug 2003 Subject: I hate Mac OS X browsers When you have a form shown on a web page, and a field selected, and you hit tab, what happens? Well, if you're using Safari, it moves to the next text field, ignoring buttons, checkboxes and so on. Camino, however, selects every form element in turn, including the buttons and checkboxes. Venerable oldie Internet Explorer offers this as a preference: http://2lmc.org/misc/ie_tab_option.png One of the things noted in that preference is that you can temporarily override the preference with Option in addition to Tab. What does this do in Camino? Nothing. In Safari? It inputs a real tab character in a form field. (I never need to do this. Is it a common request?) I hate Camino, because I prefer the Safari behaviour. I hate Safari, because sometimes I'd like to tab to form fields other than text ones, and then I have to use the mouse. I hate IE because the preference dialog is accessed with Command ; not Command , and anyway that dialog looks horrible. I also hate Mac OS X, because even when you enable Full Keyboard Access and allow it to tab to any field, that system-level preference isn't obeyed by Safari. I don't think I hate all this as much as Arthur does though.
