0000711: Unusable tab key in search results
On YaCy search results page, "Tab" and "Shif+Tab" standard keys can not be used to tab between UI components : instead it triggers the next results page loading.

This is a concern to disabled users or people who simply want to use their keyboard and standard keys to interact with the page.
- Search something
- The results page opens
- Press the "Tab" key
- Instead of tabbing to the search button or any UI component, the next results page is loaded
"Tab" and "Next page" keyboard events are explicitely designed on this page to trigger the next page loading : see https://github.com/yacy/yacy_search_server/blob/master/htroot/yacysearch.html#L20 [^]

At least, for improved accessibility the Tab key should keep its standard behavior.

But this behavior has been in YaCy since 2011 (https://github.com/yacy/yacy_search_server/commit/ef72fdac795dca8e73885e81f7b7f254f93df72c [^]), so it may be confusing for early users if we set "Tab" key again to its standard behavior.

Any feedback and comments would be welcome!
