Home Forums Other how to REALLY hide the address bar Re: how to REALLY hide the address bar


Besides, even if every browser had a non-static address bar, you’d still need some way to figure out the exact height of the bar. The only way I could think of is maybe using an invisible div set to `position: absolute; top: 0; bottom: 0;` and then get the screen height using javascript and compare it to the height of the div, then scroll down that many pixels. And I have no idea if that would work (which it probably wouldn’t because most browsers have stuff on the bottom too), but if it did it still wouldn’t account for devices with static address bars and desktop browsers. So in short, it would be difficult to implement at all and even if you could then it would still be really fragile. Too much trouble than the extra 50 pixels would be worth in my opinion.
