Since learning more about #accessibility, I've had some fun tabbing around different websites just to see what the experience is like. Sometimes it's actually more comfortable than using a mouse.

every-layout.dev/ seems like an updated successor to learnlayout.com/. Looking forward to seeing more from these folks!
