Hi, not sure if this is the appropriate forum for asking this, but just looking at:

https://openseadragon.github.io/examples/ui-keyboard-navigation/

Where it says:

"Note that Chrome and Safari do not support the arrow keys for these operations."

Is it possible to get a bit more info on this? I'm sure there's an excellent reason, just need to satisfy a client.

@edsilv that may be dated info. I'll take a look. There's lots of inconsistencies between browser engines and WebKit may have or have had an issue with arrow key events.

Well, when testing on that page, I can't get the arrow keys to work on Chrome.
Incidentally, though that page is trying to focus you for keyboard events, it doesn't seem to be working... you have to tab your way into the viewer first.
...and then WSAD works, but arrows don't (in Chrome).
I've certainly seen other webapps use the arrow keys in Chrome, so maybe it's fixable?
(I've added an issue for the focus not working: openseadragon/site-build#63)
