I would assume because it doesn't use an "onchange" event, which is
tricky with a keyboard. Unless you know a particular key-combination
(possibly alt-down?) the event fires on the first change.

I.e. Without a 'go' button, you press down to get the next option and it
sends you to the page.

Kind regards,
