Smartphone Considerations

Raised by:
Luis Barriga
Opened on:
Current draft is desktop oriented. Some sections can be modified to consider smartphone scenarios.

For example, full-screen is often assumed to be no-chrome which is common in desktop presentation mode, but not when a mobile user browses in her smartphone in full-screen due to small screen limitation and chrome could be still needed.

Also, yesterday anew text was proposed stating (ACTION 433) "For visual user agents, browser chrome SHOULD always be present to signal security context information. This requirement does not apply when UI is explicitly dismissed by the user, e.g. by switching to full screen mode."

This is OK for desktop, but not necessarily for smartphones.

We need to review the whole draft and update where smartphone considerations apply.
