    In windows I can tab from one entry field box to the next. You can do this in OS X too with the exception of boxes with choices.

    For example when I am filling out an address and I tab down to the state box it won't let me select it. In windows I am able to tab the the state box, hit F on my keyboard and it selects the state of Florida without ever having to use my mouse.

    Anyway to do this in mac?

    System Preferences > Keyboard and Mouse > Keyboard Shortcuts

    At the bottom, choose the option for All Controls.

    Yes, it should, but I think it was a throwback. As you can see in the dialog it is possible to switch with a keyboard shortcut.
