When testing my site, I noticed that keyboard navigation worked fine in Chrome, but not in Safari or Firefox. A little searching around turned up that both of these browsers require a preferences adjustment to turn on keyboard navigation.
Go to Preferences/Advanced and under Accessibility check “Press Tab to highlight each item on a webpage”.
Firefox looks to OSX system preferences for this setting. Go to System Preferences/Keyboard/Shortcuts and select “All controls” at the bottom of the screen under “Full Keyboard Access”.
With these settings you should be able to load up your favorite website and start tabbing through the links on the page. Check out the Stanford homepage for a good example.
