Need a way for an application to signal it wants to operate fullscreen and not inside of the browser's chrome.

This is done in iOS using the non-standard apple-mobile-web-app-capable META tag.

There are a variety of options for how this should / could be done:

  • Implicitly: apps implementing AppConfig could be deemed fullscreen apps.
  • Explicitly via a setting in AppConfig.
  • Explicitly via a standardized, non apple-prefixed META tag.
  • Via the WebApps WG's Fullscreen spec. (Not sure how much that spec was designed around this use-case, however.)
