I am actually personally interested in a full screen mode. I am involved
in a pervasive computing project in a university right now and we were
looking at using Epiphany as a possible kiosk UI. However, right now we
are generally looking at any embeddable HTML rendering/browser type
software that we would be able to strip of any status/navigation/tool
bars and just keep the HTML rendering behavior. It seems pretty
intuitive to use something like gtkHTML or even embed the mozilla
rendering in some way. However, the actual UI part is a very small part
of the project and we were hoping to use something as close to
off-the-shelf as possible, therefore the interest in a browser. The
reason Epiphany seemed interesting was for it's low bloat, and hopefully
ease of modification. The problem is that my group is not really
proficient in GTK programming. I would personally love to delve into epi
code but think that I would mess up more things then I could fix. So
getting back on track :) I would say that a full screen mode with
configurable display of ALL the toolbars would be immensely useful to
people like me and my colleagues.
