Let's see if I can explain this correctly . . .

When using web browsers under other OS's (Linux, the nasty, etc), I can tab from form field to field AS WELL AS tab to any check boxes...allowing me to hit the spacebar to select/de-select them.

Under OS X, with Firefox and Safari, there appears to be no way to make the checkbox an active selection. So I always have to use the mouse to select/de-select them. It's quite irritating.

I wish I could think of something that had those to check with OmniWeb, but off hand I can't think of any forms I wanna fill out...

Well, I did get to use a web form today. I made a purchase at Thinkgeek, and I was not able to tab through the radio boxes or check boxes at all with OmniWeb. I don't know if that is by design or just an issue with that site.

I did just think about a site that there are plenty of polls/questions. Maybe the next time I'm fiddling about there I'll try and remember if I can tab through the options.
