Hmm. I just realized that access keys interfere with windows keyboard 
shortcuts, but not mac because macs don't use the same keys. A plus for 
mac. But I don't think you can go completely without a mouse on a mac 
like you can on windows. A plus for windows. I never really noticed 
that before.

Also, isn't it true that access keys will activate the link for some 
browsers and only bring focus for others? And of course they do nothing 
for still other browsers.

I suppose that people with motor control difficulties probably make 
sure the browser they use supports access keys, but then probably not 
many web sites offer them, so maybe not.

Don't be afraid to try something new. An amateur built the ark. 
Professionals built the Titanic. -unknown
