Keyboard traps occur when a website visitor is tabbing through a web page but gets stuck somewhere in the middle. The visitor gets stuck and can never see the end of the web page. They might be missing something important. They have no choice but to close the web page because they can’t use it.
Only recently we discovered that this happens on web pages with Facebook widgets. I’m not saying it’s only Facebook, it might be happening with other widgets too. We’re looking for a solution. The obvious solution is to simply remove the widget that’s causing the trap.
It got me thinking about what other sorts of traps there might be on the web when using your browser.
