    Did you know you can actually resize the WebView of Safari when in fullscreen mode?

    I just discovered it by accident just now. Useful for fluid sites.

    Normally when you say you have a tip you give details on how to do it.

    Open Safari in Fullscreen mode.

    Go to the edge of the screen and you can click and drag the inner view of Safari so that overall Safari is still fullscreen....but the part that displays the webpage is not.

    Why make it fullscreen if you are then only going to make it 'not full screen'? :confused:

    Was about to curse at the OP cause it didn't work, just to realize I was on Firefox. :eek:

    Nice find, but why does it only resize horizontal direction?

    I found this when I first installed Lion and fail to see a point to it....if you don't want the page to fill the screen than don't go full screen and just resize a window...giving you room around it to use other applications, like iChat.
