What’s this? Web apps don’t have fullscreen? FALSE!
With a new addition to WebKit and Firefox, you can use fullscreen as much as you want.
How? Click that handy little read more link to find out. (If you’re already in the full post view, GO READ THE REST OF THIS)
<video> or something as well.) Just take your select element and fire
.mozRequestFullScreen(); on it. Ta-da! To close the full screen programmatically, just call
Chrome has a little display thing that says the page is in full screen and asks for user permission (although, it does go to fullscreen view before asking, with the options being ‘allow’ (does nothing) and ‘exit fullscreen’ (exactly what you’d think)). I haven’t yet tested how Firefox deals with this.
You can do alternate stylings for things while in fullscreen. Right now, there’s just a pseudo-class for that. Actually, there are two, but they do the same thing, it’s just more browser prefixing.
This is a step in the right direction for the future of web apps. We’re getting closer to all the capabilities of native programs!
