    I really dislike the way safari hides the URL and bookmark bars as soon as you scroll.

    Is there a way to disable it?

    No. Like Chrome it's forced all all users. I would also prefer an option to leave those on.

    Not me. Biggest gripe I had with Safari was the lack of full screen. Still not true full screen now but much better.

    Hide it all damn it! Other browsers do this without incident.

    Cheers for the reply.

    Really dislike it so might look at other browser options.

    Why? Lets you see more of the content and all you have to do is tap the bar to bring it back.

    It lets you see a tiny bit of extra content and means you need to swipe up or tap to being back the bookmark bar.

    I'd like it more if it didn't come out of full screen every time I scrolled back up. I wish I would have to tap the bar for that.

    It would be nice if they offered iPad users, who aren't as starved for screen real estate, a preference to turn it off.

    Requiring two taps a complete a task that used to require only one is a step backwards in my UI book.

    Cumbersome is the wrong direction for an upgrade. This is annoying, and needs to be optional. If chrome had reader I'd ditch safari over this nonsense.

    Won't happen.

    I'd rather see more of the website.

    Is fullscreen mode automatic on the iPhone 6 Plus? When I view a website in landscape, I'd expect the address bar to disappear once I scroll down on the webpage but it stays put, am I missing something?
