Show Tab and Address Bar in Fullscreen by Hovering at Top of Screen

  • I would prefer to overlay these bars over page.

    Pressing Ctrl+F11 in fullscreen mode could disable this feature.

  • Not what you want, but he latest snapshots allow the URL Field to be shown in fullscreen mode with the Focus Address Field Shortcut (F8 or Ctrl L).

    Specs: AMD A10-6800K, 8 Gb on Win 10 64-bit • Snapshot 1.15.1094.3 (64-bit)

  • The latest snapshot allows toolbars to be shown in fullscreen mode by using shortcuts, but not yet by hovering the mouse cursor.

  • This is a great request... I hope they implement it soon...

  • This is a great feature and another one in Yandex browser I love. It makes navigating fun. I suggest the devs look at yandex's implementation for some inspiration.

  • Yeah. This is an old IE feature, and I always thought it was the right way to do fullscreen. Lets you access the controls without exiting fullscreen.

  • @Dakingof Speaking of, I think Yandex is a pretty nice browser, and I can't understand why it (and Opera for that matter) doesn't have more market share.

  • @fuller1754 it's nice, but I do find it a bit slow. They have some really nice features tho, like, secured wifi(encryption while on unsecured wifi even on https disabled sites). I really do love their full screen implementation. It's so nice to be able to move my mouse to the top of my screen and have the tabs/adress bar pop out so that I don't have to exist full screen or remember which Ctrl+# my tab is on in order to switch to the tab I want. It is one of the best features I've seen in a browser and really hope vivaldi will implement it soon. Beautifully done.

  • This function also realized in Yandex Browser and Firefox.
    It's realy great function and i would love to see it in Vivaldi browser.
    i have ultrawide monitor 21:9 , so this function is just amazing and very convenient to use.
    Hope it will be realized in Vivaldi.

  • I would love to have this feature implemented. Life is so much more beautiful full screen :-).

    I noticed that also Firefox also has this requested feature. In a somewhat nervous way though. My preference would be to do it in a similar manner as how the task bar pops up: in a relatively quick movement and leaving the rest untouched. Firefox moves, unlike Yandex, the whole page down when hovering over the top, I don't see the point of that.
    I also noticed that MS Edge allows to show the auto-hidden Windows task bar when in Full Screen and Chrome, Opera and FF do not, like Vivaldi.

    Ideally all these options would be customisable, of course. I would be very happy to become part of a team getting that to work, yet not in a technical way.
