    Lion works great on my late 2008 macbook (2 gigs of ram, core 2 duo)

    My one question...is can i keep my book marks in full screen safari? i see my tabs, but above them is the address bar.

    yes, i could move my cursor to the top and get my bookmarks, but is there a way to keep them there?

    I would think not, it's similar to the full screen mode in windows. I really don't see a problem with it because at least you can have it drop down without exiting full screen.

    oh man, i hope i remember this by the time i get home tonight. I think full screen mode is awesome but with out the bookmark bar slows me down have to move the cursor up there and wait....

    now, if only we can get a "new tab" buttom up there.

    Personally what I really want to see, would be to make the address bar slightly short and add the "grid" button and a new tab buttom on the left side of the adress bar. Or better yet, the ability to choose what buttons to have, grid, tab, reading list, etc and then shrink the address bar dynamicaly. Really for me the address area is useless. I never just type stuff in, I google and then click the link. or just use the grid view.

    you know you can double click the empty tab area for a new tab, right?


    Thanks for the find yanksrock. I know this might sound off, but I wish full screen mode kept the system menu bar at the top so I can know what time it is and use iStat.

    right click anywhere on an empty space on the bookmarks bar and go to customize, from there, drag the new tab icon on to your menu bar.

    There is also an extension you can install that puts a new tab button right next to the address bar. Nice little add on, easy, probably just as easy as right clicking I guess.

    Can't believe I never checked the View menu. This was the only thing keeping me from using Safari in fullscreen mode.

    Thanks.
