Re: A question about chrome devTool undock function for screen reader user

This should be raised as an accessibility bug with Google. AS if you are in
a tab strip, focus should stay there unless you decide to move it.

Subject: Re: [WebAIM] A question about chrome devTool undock function for
screen reader user

On a slightly related question, do you guys know how to reorder the tabs in
I want the aXe tab to show up first, or at least as close to the start of
the tabs as possible (the only way to activate it that I have found is to
open dev tools, locate the tabs at the top and repeatedly press ctrl-] to
move to the next tab, unfortunately this is a slow process since opening at
least some of the tabs automatically shifts focus away from the tabs into
the tab panel and you have to arrow back up to the tabs area before pressing
ctrl-] again).
