What is the reasoning behind this idioticness by IE7?

Firefox: I’m in the address bar, I hit [TAB], I end up in the search box.

IE7: I’m in the address bar, I hit [TAB], I end up on the refresh page.

Why would they something so damn retarded? If I am advanced enough to use tab, I obviously now what F5 / Ctrl+R is for. What a stupid stupid design choice.

Speaking of tab, if I am leaving you a reply, I want to click my name, tab, email, tab, reply, tab ‘submit’.

But that last tab doesn’t work. Instead, it takes me up to the search bar.

I actually noticed that for months but never got around to mentioning that :P

Thanks for writing this amazing post that reminded me of that, Ahmed. It was all you!
