Android and iPhone browsers allow the web page to hide the browser bar upon page load by calling window.scrollTo(0,1) and (0,0) respectively. Please implement this in Sailfish as well to support fullscreen web pages of many HTML5 web apps.

And how to let the user bring back the navigation bar? Perhaps via the gesture to scroll up the page like it is done at the moment, but this should work even if the page is fullscreen and thus already scrolled up all the way.

Edit for SFOS

With Sailfish OS 2.0 your are still unable to manually hide the browser bar on a full screen page.

Suggestion: You should be able to just swipe down to hide the browser bar and show it up again if you scroll up (even on not scrollable fullscreen page).

This will also be consistent with the current implementation, because you are also able to swipe down the expanded browser bar (e.g. while typing in a web adress) to hide/collapse it again.

This is a requirement for being able to browse fullscreen webpages! The browser bar is very often in the way.
