In Chrome, after a Google search, it is possible to press Tab to cycle through the search results. Then you can press Enter to select and open that link.

Is possible to do the same on Safari 6? After I searched something in the "omnibar", pressing Tab does not on cycle search results, and instead passed focus through many other elements. How do I get Tab to act like it does in Chrome?

Looks like this is not possible yet:… – guptron Oct 27 '13 at 21:58
You can use google's own shortcuts AFAIK...check this out....especially the experiment stuff... If you could bring focus to search query box, you can use google instant shortcuts as well.. – tumchaaditya Oct 29 '13 at 6:30

Safari => preferences => advanced => Check Press Tab to highlight each item on a webpage.

Love this in chrome myself. It still works a tiny bit better there, but checking that option makes it workable in safari.

but in this way only the first link is selected. after that, the focus goes everywhere again – Luke Jul 30 '12 at 15:40
