How can I hide the address bar in google chrome? I found this article but I am unable to find a solutions for Mac OS. Ideally I would like all tool bars to disappear similar to how they do in Quicktime. see images: With tool bar showing Hidden tool bar

Is there such a solutions available?

Btw, the article that you found is out of date. Apparently Google did not like the way that experimental feature was turning out and disabled it. :( I have yet to find a way to do it either. –  Jordan T. Cox Jun 7 '12 at 18:23
Did either of you find a way to solve this yet? I'm still using an ancient version of Chrome (~12.x), which is starting to break with all this new-fangled HTML5 stuff around. –  Vidur Aug 23 '12 at 11:06
@bassplayer7 will do, I have been neglecting the OSX stackexchange a bit. –  rudolph9 Nov 14 '12 at 17:34
Good. It benefits you and the answerer - the answerer not just with rep but also tags, I believe. –  bassplayer7 Nov 15 '12 at 20:57
Out of curiosity: why do you want such a solution? –  Bart Arondson Nov 18 '12 at 21:43

I'm not entirely sure I understand what you're asking, but I think you mean in full screen mode judging by the tags.

To hide the toolbar, click this button in the top-right corner: button

Alternatively, you can use View > Enter Presentation Mode (++F).

This does not answer my question, I looking for how to fill the entire content of a chrome window with html content without the necessity to be in full screen mode. –  rudolph9 May 9 '12 at 1:49
@rudolph9 To be fair, there was a full screen tag. –  timothymh May 9 '12 at 14:08
So you can see how there might be a vague possibility I'd think you were talking about being in full screen mode. –  timothymh May 9 '12 at 14:10
So maybe some way to emulate fullscreen mode without actually going into fullscreen? –  asmeurer Nov 16 '12 at 7:22
+1. While it did not answer OP's question, it did answer what I was looking for! –  Lstor Jun 27 '13 at 17:04

To get full screen w/o address bar in Chrome on OSX use Cmd-Shift-F

This does not answer the question. Please read more carefully. –  rudolph9 Aug 25 '14 at 13:01
