I am writing a web app. I would like the users to be able to launch a Chromium browser (SRWare Iron) without an address bar or tabs, just a frame.

Is it possible? How would I go about doing so?

The functionality I'm looking for was the --app="http://mywebapp.internal" switch

Full screen is currently only available by pressing F11

  • Real full screen mode is available in the latest release of Google Chrome. You simply need to press F11.

  • For clarification – there is no full-screen mode in Google Chrome yet. This simply opens the browser maximized.

One thing that many users may find frustrating is that Google Chrome opens in window mode. Thankfully there is a simple fix for this. By editing the Google Chrome shortcut, you simply need to add the -start-maximized parameter to the end of the shortcut line. Your new shortcut line should look something like this:

C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe -start-maximized

Problem solved! Chrome will now open in full-screen mode.

Note I'm still looking for some way to force it to run that way – Ivo Flipse Oct 1 '09 at 17:17
