        An alternative is to make the :focus pseudoclass selector match only elements which should have the focus ring, and to provide the developer more control on deciding which elements may receive focus and/or focus ring (today, tabindex might be use for that purpose, but it has the unwanted effect of affecting the tab ordering).

        If I'm recalling right, according to my testings, in IE, the `:focus` selector matches more often than what is generally wanted; but there has been progress in Edge, so that my workaround for preventing *really* unwanted focus styles in IE are no longer needed in Edge or any other modern browser.
