Default Immersive mode web browser?

Can't find a web browser supporting immersive mode, I don't want to root or use a custom ROM.

Is it possible? I think it would be nice to hide buttons and do some browsing in real full screen mode

Thanks

i have no idea what you want exactly... but i disable chrome on all my phones and only use firefox. and it is as free of clutler as you can get.

and even if not enough for you, there is the fullscreen add-on that removes even the action bar buttons from the OS

Immerse mode means use the whole screen hiding the buttons at the bottom of the screen, one application that uses it is YouTube or even Gallery.

There are plenty of ways to do this with root. Sadly, I don't know of any ways to do this without root.

guys, already said... install Firefox and then the full screen mobile add on.

when you long press a page there is a menu ... it has some bugs... eg when you leave the app and come back you have to reenter full screen. but besides that it does what you want.

edit, OK just noticed it does not remove the bottom buttons... they just become dots... not sure i like that way more or less... i think i like having access to home and back buttons at all times

Just root man, just root, and disable those awful on screen nonsense permanently and switch to Pie. Make use of the screen estate, everywhere.
