    Why is every browser forcing this on us? Do people really like auto full screen?

    first (over in Android)
    Chrome
    Firefox

    now Safari on IOS7, at least give us an option to turn it off.

    /Rant

    anyone agree?

    Edit: oops meant to post this in IOS7 area, MODs can you move this if you are paying attention?

    I agree. Annoying. They should give us an option.

    It also hides the share, bookmarks, and tabs buttons. Maybe people want access to that at all times?

    I personally like the change as I always enabled full screen manually on iOS 6.

    This, cause I hate going up/down a little bit to get the menu back.

    I didn't like it from the start but I got used to it already. I didn't realize I can go back and fourth by swiping the screen from side to side. thought I had to click the back button which would make me click the bottom row to unhide it.

    Tap the top or bottom of the screen.

    Off screen swiping actually works all throughout the OS. If there is a back button swipe right from off screen and it will go back instead of having to press the button. Some of the updated apps that use new API's can do this too now.
