Steps to reproduce
Steps to reproduce: create a web-page with inline SVG content. Try to tab through it.
IE & Edge make every <svg> element on a page keyboard focusable. This is inconsistent with other browsers, with the specs, and with user & author expectations. It is a major usability issue when there are lots of small SVG icons in a web page.
IE & Edge do respect the
focusable attribute that was introduced in SVG Tiny 1.2, but that is obsolete and not supported in other major web browsers. SVG 2 uses
tabindex, like HTML.
