The "quick peek" feature in full screen mode is useful: when hovering the mouse on the top edge of screen in full screen mode, tab bar and address bar will pop up to allow you to change tabs, enter new address, interact with extensions, etc.

However, the transition of the popped-up bars is extremely unnatural. The entire webpage move down without any animation to clear some space for top bars. And it will suddenly move up when you exit top-hovering. Forcing users to watch the webpage jumping back and forth simply because they what to peek the bars is not a very good idea. Actually, please do not change how the webpage is displayed unless the user intended to do so.

I believe this modification can greatly improve the user experience in full screen mode. Hope we can see this in future updates.

I also like this idea... it is very inconvenient to see the entire page shift when all you want to see are the tabs up top...



I also propose a setting to display tabs while in full-screen mode.... this way none of that shifting doesn't have to happen in the first place.
