I love when web designers don't realize that "clicking" changes "focus" and "space" also acts as "click".

Examples:

  • Last night, using Jitsi, I muted myself with a click on the mute button. But Jitsi also allows using space to mute/unmute. So, what happened? Pressing space would either trigger their keybind action or the pseudo-click, and then the other one would kick in. Result: I was quickly unmuting myself and muting again.

  • Just now, I paused Prime with a click in the play/pause button. To play again, I used space. Same thing happened: One kicked in and resumed play and then the other kicked in and pause it again.
