            Bug ID: 141113
           Summary: AX: VoiceOver/Safari consistently hangs following skip
                    link w/extra JavaScript
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525.x (Safari 3.2)
          Hardware: iOS
                OS: iOS 8.1

1) open http://www.paciellogroup.com
2) first link in the page is a hidden skip link, which appears on :focus - activate the link
3) Safari correctly jumps/focuses to the main content, reads the first heading...and then hangs. VoiceOver also appears mostly unresponsive until Safari is explicitly closed from the app-switcher

The skip link, as implemented on the Paciello Group site, includes additional JavaScript (to overcome the problem of current Chrome and older WebKits that would not correctly move the actual keyboard focus/virtual cursor correctly when following skip links).

/* skip link patch for chrome, mainly */
  jQuery('#skippy').click(function() {
    var selector=jQuery(this).attr('href');
    if(selector) {
