Am I blind? Can't find any fullscreen options under view for Safari 5. Please enlighten me

    Full-screen view and closed captions for HTML5 video.
    In Safari 5, HTML5 video can deliver an even richer, more accessible experience. Watch video embedded with the HTML5 video tag in full screen. If the video includes closed captions, simply click the closed-captions button in the controls to display them.

    Video is the key.

    Wut?

    I wasn't talking about video (read my post). I'm just talking about Fullscreen (go look in your firefox: there's a fullscreen option under view). So your post is completely useless. I don't care about HTML5 video - that's a whole different topic. Thanks.

    Then you must learn the very old way to enlarge any window (drag bar in lower right corner).

    Sorry, but you are talking BS!

    I'm already using a tool called BetterTouchTool which automatially maximezes windows to specific sizes the user can define. So that is not the issue.

    What you don't seem to understand is, what I'm talking about - at all.

    Go in Firefox
    hit Shift + Cmd + F
    and see the miracle.

    And then go tell me where that option is in Safari 5.

    Thanks.

    There isn't one.

    Though if you really want that, you can download Glims - a free Safari plugin - which will give you lots of options including Fullscreen.

    I believe QuickTimeKirk was saying that the closest thing to fullscreen (without plugins) is maximizing the window.
  • Babaqum Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Then why didn't he say it?

    Yes, I'm aware of Glims but this plug-in smells pretty dead atm. No updates for a few months and lot's of issues are why I just uninstalled that this morning.

    That lost me the Fullscreen options + the screensaver option to have the last tabs reopen.

    Any alternatives? Well I really like the firefox fullscreen-view so I might just stick with firefox. So this is the 5th attempt that Apple failed to convince me of their browser.

    Sad statistics.

    Babaqum, Try the Glims plugin fullscreen for web pages.

    Sorry I missed you reply about Glims... I've never had problems with it. The developer has always stayed on top of any problems or issues with the plugin. That's on reason there isn't an update.

    Yep. No Fullscreen-mode. Unbelievable. What kind of update is dropping features?

    No search from addressbar as in Chrome / Firefox? No UI updates?

    Bye bye Safari5.
  • David M Brewer Level 6 Level 6 (9,270 points)
    Besides...were in the update did it say Safari 5 had a fullscreen function?
  • Babaqum Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I never said, the update-info mentioned that.

    Doesn't anybody read??? This thread is useless. I'm out of here. The answer is: NO it does NOT support fullscreen. And since I consider that basic functionality of a browser I say "thanks" and close this.

    Yes, I am aware, how to maximize a window.
    Yes, I am aware, that Glims exists.
  • QuickTimeKirk Level 9 Level 9 (50,405 points)
    Obviously, you've been enlightened.
  • David M Brewer Level 6 Level 6 (9,270 points)
    Since when has it been a basic function? By who? I guess your the one who doesn't read or at least didn't read what's new in Safari 5. I guess when a competitor makes a change to their program (firefox) every body must follow suit. Firefox doesn't have the Read function, it a basIc function...what's up with that?

    Gee, when something new comes out some people complain.
