Autohiding the address bar in a web browser
« on: December 23, 2020, 03:50:03 am »
I have successfully used Kiwi browser as it seems to have sufficient keyboard support & ad-block. However, in the recent Chromium release, on which Kiwi is based, the address bar does not hide automatically anymore when scrolling down the page, thus reducing the screen real estate annoyingly. Do you happen to know any tip how this autohide could be enabled, e.g. by using browser extensions? Or would you have any alternative browsers to recommend?

After banging my head with obvious choices (Chromium based browsers have the address bar issue; Firefox on the other hand is poorly optimized for keyboard use), I took Samsung Internet browser into use. It works well, seems to have all the features of e.g. Chrome or Kiwi, and incorporates a plenty of keyboard shortcuts.

Regarding Firefox: as mentioned in other post, I use Sakakey addon for Firefox. It makes it possible to control FF almost completely via keyboard.

Applies of course only to Firefox 68 since they removed the addon capabilities in the current release. They have enabled all addons again in nightly builds, but haven't tried that yet since the 68 is still working fine for me.

Been using Vivaldi for months now in all of my three platforms - Android, Raspbian and Win10. Good syncing between them, focus in privacy, keyboard options and lot of others... And the head guy himself at least used a Cosmo last year, maybe still...

And the bars disappear nicely right now with Samsung Note8, my Cosmo is on transport after hinge repair.

I recommend!
