Default Did Samsung's "Internet" app always cover notification bar?

Just noticed on my S5 that the stock "internet" app covers the notification bar giving a real "full screen" mode and making more real estate available versus Chrome and other browsers.
Nice feature.
Just wondering if this is a S5 feature or was this on all other prior phones?

Anyway, really liking the stock browser. Think I'll stick with it.

If I remember correctly on the GS3 it did not hide the notification bar.

I like it too!

It does on the Note 3.

I'm sticking with Firefox, it has plugin support.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

It didn't on the S4 - I was quite surprised (and pleased) that it does on the S5.

It does that by default, but you can prevent it from happening in settings.

My s4 was the same way

Sounds like I was just unlucky that my S4 didn't Maybe I disabled the setting at some point (which would be odd, because I specifically wanted it to be more aggressive at going fullscreen, exactly as the S5 is..
Oh well - S5 now, so it doesn't matter!
