Yes all of my testing was on Mac OS X, I hadn't considered browsers
reacting differently across different platforms tbh.

Ideally I would like to standardise on how focus state should be handled
depending on touch, click and keyboard input. Otherwise, developers can add
these pseudo classes to their styles, but it feels like there shouldn't be
too much expectation of when one should be applied over the other.


On a seperate note - I like the way FF actually applies a background-color
to active elements, it means developers can override this by implementing
the pseudo class and override it by applying their own background-color,
much nicer than vendor prefixes.
