why crabs can't walk straight?

We all know that crabs walk sideways and not straight....why?? :?: :!:
Are there any relationship between the crabs size and their walking way?

if it is walk straight they will not run for a long time. the simple, the feet will not have a good balance.
it do not walk straightly because it can not do that.
