Allow users using a keyboard to get quickly to different parts of the page

    Details

      Description

      Similar to the menu shown when using the keyboard in this page:

      https://developer.mozilla.org/es/

      or this one:

      https://blog.mozilla.org/

      The basic idea is that when using the tab key at the beginning of the page, the user should cycle through a list of links that point to different parts of the page. This should allow a user to access search boxes or important contents with only a few keystrokes.

      Additionally, we should provide a framework in order to allow developers to add actions/anchors into this menu.

      Considerations:

      • Should be careful with the number of registered actions. If too big, it could trap a keyboard user in the menu for quite some time.
      • Should define what action means. It should probably only be used for navigation/focus purposes.
      • Should allow dynamic registration of actions.
