Tab order

Tab order

Short, concise description of the idea
Change the tab order on the login prompts so that the "Remember Me" checkbox follows the password text box.

Full description of the idea
I switch between two accounts often, but one I like to stay logged in on for extended periods of time because it is my primary account. If the tab stops/indices for all the login pages (including those locations at the top of the main page) could be changed so that the "Remember Me" checkbox would follow the password text box or the "Forgot Password?" link, it would make the login process mouse-free and far more intuitive than back-tracking 3 tab indices from the password field.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Makes moving through the login process mouse-free if you want to be remembered.
  • Sheer convenience for not having to know that the tab stop index for the checkbox is actually BEFORE the username text boxes.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • People who tab to the "Log in" button instead of pressing enter will have to get used to tabbing an additional time.
