    1010Yes, I can tab to them. It just never occurred to me to try as tab is essentially broken on a vast amount of webpages that aren't forms as you usually get "stuck" somewhere and can't get out again.

    12 Tab is also a horrible way to navigate to a control that's not right at the top of the page when there are more direct tools available. e.g. on the admin page dashboard, it takes 21 presses of the tab key to get to the "comments" menu item in the left hand pane. With Vimari (Vimium in Chrome, Vimiam-X in Firefox), I can press "f" "q" a" and be there in 3 key presses. I would guess that for visually impaired users, tab is a good solution as sequential navigation is probably best. However I have arthritis and can see just fine, so spatially-aware navigation tools make much more sense for me.
