As the title describes, I'm looking for a totally clean full screen web browser with quick navigating options in Mac OS X.

To be specific, I don't want url bar, toolbar or anything else when in full screen mode. Although I've known that safari can hide toolbar in full screen after a few tweaks, navigating seems to be a big pain and I hate moving mouses. I'm also looking for something like sublime text's pop out input bar: with a quick gesture and some simple input, I can reach most of the functions a mouse can do in few seconds.

Does a browser like this even exists for Mac OS X?

EDIT: @dwightk has provided two feasible options in the answer below using plugins for chrome and safari. But I would like this question to remain open if anyone know more solutions

  • I think several browsers do this if you just hit F11...

Have you seen Vimium for Chrome?

I'm not sure if there is a way to hide the toolbar in Chrome, but the vim extension for Safari might be the last step you need for navigating using only the keyboard.

    Thanks! Both methods work for me. And I figured out that 'presentation mode' of chrome can hide everything.
