Having an outline is important for accessibility. Without this certain users will never know which elements has focus.

Taking this away because of ill-conceived aesthetics is bad.

How to Fix

Do not remove the outline, but if you really have to you could modify it.

/* BAD */
a:focus {
  border: 1px solid red;
  outline: none;
}

/* GOOD */
a:focus {
  border: 1px solid red;
  outline: 2px solid red;
}
