Really excited about the new 2.4.11 guideline in 2.2.

It basically requires front-end web devs and designers to stop changing default focus styles and provide an obvious focus appearance.

Trying to convince folks to not change default focus appearance is something I spend a large amount of my time doing as an online accessibility consultant.

So glad to soon have some backup from the WCAG.

@rachelcherry keeping in mind that they still *can* change default focus styles, but then are on the hook to make sure they satisfy those specific criteria to be obvious/visible enough

@patrick_h_lauke Exactly. Now what will probably happen is a bunch of folks just wanting to change the focus outline color. Which is much preferable to what folks have been trying to do.
