There may be no touch events on Stingray so we may support spatial navigation to let users can interact with a hardware keyboard (or a remote controller).
Bug 927576 - Spatial Navigation - keyboard shows when you focus on text input element, pressing the action key submits the form

We may also need address this bug on stingray.

Hi SC,

As we discussed before, I put a patch for enabling snav for every iframe in b2g.
However, this patch should be totally wrong. There must be a better way to do this.

One more question I would like to add here:
When it comes to the use case for browser, spatial navigation as highlight mode might not be enough.
There's another mode using D-pad to control the cursor just like mouse. (let's call it cursor mode)
I wonder if you have plan to contribute also the cursor mode?
Hi Jongsoo, any update on spatial navigation on this bug ?
May we get the patch first to start the review process?  Could you please help uploading the work ?  Thank you very much !!

The use of DPAD is critical.  
This requirement MUST BE DONE.
