Discussion on: Why "Skip Nav" Link is important!

I 💕 skip-nav when it works right. I do not use a screen reader but really like to keep my hands on the keyboard if I can.

Ironically enough this page's skip-nav is not working 😲. It appears as the first link I can tab into, but goes no where.

Since we are using anchor element for skip nav implementation, we should press the enter/return key (not spacebar).
Also, note that we are not directly redirecting to any focused element, to go the target element we need to press tab one more time.
