Most Stack Exchange sites make it possible to see when a button got focus. When using the Tab key for submitting a question or answer this is quite useful to make sure you don't accidentally open a link by hitting the Enter key and lose your text input.

For example on the Bitcoin SE, this is how the submit button looks:

submit button without focus

And this is how it looks when focused (by alt-tabbing twice from the text input field):
