    As the transition to widescreen has occurred, vertical space is limited, especially on the 11" MacBook Air and 13" MacBook Pro.

    I've always wondered, Apple is all about simple. So why didn't they ever make the UI look like this?

    Obviously this is a 5 minute Paint sketch, so don't give me TOO much crap for it. :D

    I think it would be a lot less distracting and save a lot of space.

    Hidden Message in the picture, too. :D

    Why is that better than this:

    That's already available with full-screen mode, with more customization available if you still want the bookmarks bar, or the status bar, etc.

    Oh, I didn't realize Safari had that. Is that available for Snow Leopard?

    It's part of Lion. Lion added full screen for any application that opts in to it. Safari on Lion does.

    Ah, makes sense.

    There is a program for Safari in Snow Leopard called "Glims" that does something like that, however it is buggy, and doesn't work very well with the UI in Snow Leopard.
