    I am currently testing Lions full screen feature and I am still undecided if I like it in Safari, so I wanted to see what my fellow Mac users think.
    I have created a poll where you can select if you like using Safari, Mail and iCal in full screen mode or as a normal window.
    Please explain why you prefer one mode or the other and tell us your monitors resolution. Thanks!

    Depends. On my 27" iMac (2560x1440) I would prefer apps in normal window and on the 11" MacBook Air (1344x756) most of the time in full screen mode.

    I agree that a bigger resolution doesn't necessarily need the full screen option. However, on a smaller display the full screen is a nice option to have.

    I like fullscreen mode. If Lion is cheap enough, I may just get it before I really need to.

    You should a category for "All of the above app's in fullscreen" or "All the above app's in their own window." Personally, as I use dual displays, the only applications that I may benefit from in full screen would be the Pro-Apps such as "Final Cut X" and "Aperture." Otherwise, iCal, Mail, Address Book - they work together so having them open at same time in their own windows is more efficient.
