Mac OS X I was able to try out and preview Mac OS X Panther 10.3 for the past few months after WWDC and for the last few days I am running a latest version. So, what to expect from Mac OS X when it comes out on the evening of October 24th? Come in and have a look in this preview article. Update: screenshots removed at request of Apple.

Tab navigation improved?
by Rick on Thu 16th Oct 2003 07:31 UTC

Has tab navigation been fixed so that tabbing in a form filled with fields doesn't cause any fields with drop-down lists to be skipped? This is my biggest pet peeve with OSX so far. E.g., if I'm filling in my name and address in a form with fields, my hands are on the keyboard happily tabbing from one field to the next. When I've filled in my street address, then tab to City, then tab to the State field, oops, it skips right over the State field, at which point I'm forced to take my hands off the keyboard and use the mouse to scroll down the list till I come to my state.
Windows is much, much smarter and user-friendly in this regard. When I tab to the State field there, a list of states drops down, and I can press a letter to take me to the place in the list that has the name of the first state that starts with that letter. I don't have to use the mouse at all. Please tell me Panther has fixed this mess. Thanks.
