PSA: Google Chrome Updated With Full Screen Mode In Lion!

Google released an update to it’s Chrome web browser yesterday which includes some snazzy new features. Long since the release of Mac OS X Lion this past July, those of you that use Chrome over the included Safari have been left without full screenability within Chrome.

With this update we finally get what we’ve wanted for a couple months. I am not really sure on what took so long, as Google is usually on top of things. But the feature works as expected. I do feel clicking the little arrows in the top right of the window creates a chunky – less Liony – feel to the full screen action compared to Safari. But the keyboard shortcut (cmd – shift – F) creates a fluid swap to the full screen web browsing.

Also incuded in the update for Mac users is Chrome is finally using Lion’s overlay scrolling which creates the scrollbar only when you’re scrolling. They’ve also fixed some crash bugs and added an “all-around visual polish.” There are also some technologies changed to allow developers to create even more powerful web apps and games.

If you haven’t given Chrome a try, now is the time people!
