Firefox can do it, can Chrome?

Here's what I'm looking for:

It appears to be true that the function you seek isn't supported, but maximizing in Google Chrome is so tight to screen boarders that if you're showing tabs maximized that would seem to be the same effect you're seeking. Did i miss something in your explanation? –  Hardryv Sep 5 '10 at 0:09

Sorry, can't find an extension for this... By the way, tip: CTRL+TAB ;-) –  Tom Wijsman Sep 5 '10 at 1:00
    
I want tabs but I want to utilize as much screen space as possible on my laptop. Full screen hides the taskbar and nav bar for that extra bit of space. –  snitzr Sep 5 '10 at 1:04

Autohiding the taskbar isn't enough? –  digitxp Sep 5 '10 at 2:22
    
I'd prefer not to autohide, but that is an option. –  snitzr Sep 8 '10 at 13:36

Try Ctrl+Cmd+F.

That exits presentation mode and (I think) solves your problem.

This is a far superior solution to the accepted answer! –  opsb Sep 4 '12 at 8:38
    
This didn't work in Chrome 26 on OS X 10.8. Cmd-Shift-F is now bound to "Exit Presentation Mode" (see the "View" menu). I note that exiting leaves fullscreen as well. Exiting, then re-entering Fullscreen mode does restore the tabs and address bar as expected. –  John Whitley Apr 18 '13 at 22:38

The extension Fullscreen address bar does:

Address bar for fullscreen mode : Use F6 key or move mouse to top screen.
Tab list : Use ctrl key and top/down arrows

Didn't work immediately on Ubuntu, but works if you restart and open new tabs. –  Ross Apr 21 '11 at 9:15

I've accepted this as the best answer, but I am concerned. Why does the extension need to access "Your data on all websites...browsing history... bookmarks"? –  snitzr Jun 1 '11 at 1:28
    
It only needs them if it intends to display them as choices when one types-in a partial URL. Even if it does not, this may be for "future use". –  harrymc Jun 1 '11 at 13:09

Maybe, but there is no way to know. For the record, there is no review on Google's site. Existing on a Google hosted server does not make an extension legit. If you post an extension, it shows up right away. Caveat emptor. –  snitzr Nov 30 '11 at 21:24
    
This extension now has many reviews and appears safe, but I can't get it to work. On this other hand, the extension Fullscreen Address Bar has only a few reviews but works for me: chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/fullscreen-address-bar/… –  Jess Riedel Mar 30 at 20:39

I just toggle the bookmarks bar on and off (ctrl-shift-B) when I need a little bit more space, but not so much more that I use fullscreen mode. There's no way to toggle the address bar as well.

Ctrl-tab still works when you're in fullscreen mode, so this is good enough for me.

I'm using Google Chrome (Version 22.0.1229.79) on the mac, and fullscreen mode still shows the tabs!

You can toggle fullscreen mode using:

Shift + Cmd + F

and you can toggle the bookmarks bar using:

Shift + Cmd + B

Which gives you lots more space!

You can toggle tabs upwards and backward also using Ctrl + Pg Up or Pg Dn.
