I wrestled with those New York Times tabs yesterday when I couldn’t get the “All comments” tab to highlight. Finally, I switched from Chrome to IE11, where the tabs show up as links. As links, they work.

I’ve seen “tabs” on It’s a New York times website that reviews tech-related stuff. For example, in Best Travel Gear, if you click on that, it opens into a web page with tabs: packing, just in case, etc. I’ve never figured out how to open those tabs.

I haven't seen them as tabs as much as closed menus

If you press space bar, that opens that.

I wonder if that is the same thing you mentioned.

To me, tabs are like separate pages that you control + tab to.

I am noticing that more and more web pages are using tabs on the page to organize their content. For example, a restaurant menu web page may have tabs for breakfast, lunch items, etc.  When I hit ENTER or the spacebar to access a tab, I find that i can't read any of the items within the tab, or navigate within the tab.  What keystrokes do I need to use to work with these tabs?
