Ticket #7163 (open feature)
Investigate viability of using <a tabindex=0> instead of <a href="#">, etc.
|Reported by:||ajpiano||Owned by:|
As I understand it, the main thing holding us back from increased use of the tabindex attribute for allowing focusability to arbitrary elements, and avoiding using href="#", is the fact that elements that are not natively tabbable without tabindex are not tabbable on Safari 3, which runs only on [relatively] older phones. If switching to tabindex can help, for instance, with suppressing the browser status bar when hovering over a dialog close button, and other problems, we should investigate whether the usage levels of Safari 3 at present truly merit keeping tabindex "tabled."
