Full screen Mac OS X browser

[ #5873 ]

geez, I have tried MSIE, Chimera, Mozilla, Opera, OmniWeb and iCab and none of them seems to support a full screen mode. How lame is that?! Aaargh. I want to use powerbook+html for presentation foo, but apparently not in a cool way.

    Yes, full-screen mode would be nice, but I don't see it as a show-stopper. I see proper handling of CSS, Link navigation, etc. as much more important.

    • I used it earlier today and just made the mozilla window as big as it could get. The menu bar and the mozilla title bar wasn't really distracting at all.

      I used Pod::POM for my slides (did I already mention that?) with a bunch of CSS. It worked pretty nicely.
