‘FullScreen For Safari’ Extension Lets You Browse On Safari In FullScreen Mode
If you own a jailbroken iPhone, you may be aware of a number of browser extensions that can improve the web surfing experience on the native platform.
German iPhone hacker Yllier had recently released a new extension or jailbreak app that enhances the user experience on iPhone's Safari browser with new functionalities.
'FullScreen For Safari', as the name suggests, is an extension available on Cydia to jailbroken iPhone users that will enable the native Mobile Safari app to offer a fullscreen window for unobstructed browsing. Once installed, users may simply shake their iPhone to toggle between a fullscreen mode and a normal mode. Alternately, users may also use a three-finger-tap control to enable fullscreen browsing.
Fullscreen browsing is just one of the several new features that the extension brings to the native Mobile Safari app as it also introduces a number of gesture controls. The user may swipe across the screen horizontally with two fingers to navigate between tabs. A similar vertical two finger swipe can be used to either open a new tab or close the existing one. Here is a video demo of the 'FullScreen For Safari' extension in action:
The extension is currently supported on the iPhone and iPod Touch and is available for download from the BigBoss repository on Cydia at a price of $1.49. While early reviewers of the app have pointed out to frequent crashes, the developer has just released an updated version of the jailbreak app that fixes the crash problem besides introducing newer gesture controls is already available for download from Cydia.
