Power users know that the key to real speed is in good keyboard shortcuts. For web forms, the most useful shortcuts are the ability to go to the next field on a form by hiting the **Tab** key and using **Shift + Tab** to go to the previous field. Unfortunately, not all browsers perform this action respectability across all field types on a form. For example, in Firefox and Safari, these shortcut keys actually **ignore** Radio and Checkbox fields.
In the spirit of our last [browser improvement feature](http://www.wufoo.com/2009/11/05/better-dropdowns-for-internet-explorer/), we’ve got another great music video to show off our latest solution to tab skipping.
This feature is now enabled on every form in Wufoo. All you have to do is tab and shift + tab to enjoy the new controls. If you’re on a radio or checkbox choice, just hit spacebar to select or unselect that active option. Thanks goes out to our own Alex Vazquez, who took on the challenge of making all the major browsers behave nicely with your Tab key if they encounter a Wufoo powered form.
**UPDATE:** Thanks to your comments, we see that this tab skipping behavior is limited to default installations of the Mac. Sorry, Safari Windows and Firefox Windows! One thing we just learned, however, is that you can apparently overide this behavior in Keyboard Shortcuts like so:
You can either hit **Ctrl+F7** or change that **Full Keyboard Access** setting to **All controls**.
Or make it a browser only setting by going to the Advanced controls in Safari’s Preferences.
Anyway, we’ll keep our changes to our forms since the default on Mac is to tab skip those form controls. Thanks commenters for all the new info!
