    When i used to see screenshots for the mac, i thought it would bug the HELL out of me to not have browsers fullscreen.

    Infact, i found the opposite once i started using it. The idea of running fullscreen just doesn't seem to 'work' so well.. but, it feels better not having it fullscreen. You'll hopefully understand when it arrives, because i'm making *no* sense. ;)

    yeah depending on how big your monitor/and resolution, you dont really need it. i have a 17" flat panel and i like not having fullscreen :dunno: cant really explain it, it just goes well with osx

    Windows is really the only OS out there that most people run apps full screen. Unix, Linux, OSX, etc., all tend to see their users run apps windowed. I guess I'm kinda lucky in that I've been working in a Unix environment a lot at work (we all have PC laptops and a Unix terminal in our offices). Windows really isn't very efficient at switching apps, which might explain why people do it the way they do.
