Mac Tip - get TAB key to tab into checkboxes, etc

http://www.mactips.org/archives/2008/12/16/tab-through-checkboxes-and-radio-buttons-in-firefox-and-safari/

I don't know about you, but one thing about the Mac that was driving me nutty (until moments ago) was the fact that, when filling in forms I couldn't tab to a checkbox or to a dropdown menu like I could in Windows. What a shame, I thought. Until I read the above post.

Turns out it's a system preference. Now I'm a happy camper again.

System Preferences>Keyboard and Mouse > Keyboard shortcuts. At the very bottom of that screen, underneath the list of your options. Click the All Controls option.

Woohooo!

I have been wondering about that for some time and now that I have that set right I will save time in being able to use the keyboard to do the job quicker.
