Android - Force browser to hide nav & tab bar

Sadly Google Chrome and other browsers don't have a feature to hide the url bar and tab bar. One alternative is the app Full Screen Browser. Its features are:

  • Web browser that allows for full screen viewing.
  • Hide or dim navigation bar (Home, Back etc).
  • Hide action/status bar

I am using Fully Kiosk Browser to read books on

It works great. Key features:

  • Immersive mode from the start
  • Ability to choose screen orientation without having to enable rotation system wide. I like reading in landscape. There is also reverse landscape.
  • Home screen shortcut for the website (library or book in my case) so that we can quickly jump into reading.
  • No ads or any other nonsense
