Now you’re probably asking what is that and why do I need it? Anyone that has used their Chromebook in fullscreen mode can tell you how annoying it is when you are jumping around tabs. Without this feature enabled the Tab bar is not accessible when in fullscreen mode. What this feature adds is essentially an auto-hide feature to the tab bar allowing it to be there when you need it and not when you don’t. Pretty awesome right? Follow this simple How to on enabling Immersive Fullscreen and using it efficiently.
