Universal login: name tab pass tab space tab enter

When an application or web site prompts you for a login the accepted standard has become:

  1. The cursor should be blinking in the login name field
  2. Type your login name
  3. Press tab to move to the password field
  4. Type your password
  5. Press tab to move the Remember Me field as a checkbox
  6. Tap the space bar to toggle the checkbox, if needed
  7. Press tab to move to Login button (optional)
  8. Press Enter

Judge your Web 2.0 site by its conformance to this standard.
