Multiple Monitor Full Screen version 2 released
9 January, 2011 § 7 Comments
Today marks the release of version 2 of the Multiple Monitor Full Screen extension for Google Chrome. Multiple Monitor Full Screen allows videos to consume the entire web page so videos will stay in full screen even when interacting with other programs on your computer.
The extension places the commonly seen “full screen” icon in the address bar when it detects a video on the current webpage. Clicking on the icon will bring the video in to full screen mode, and clicking the icon again will exit full screen.
This new release gives instructional text on how to make the full webpage video use the full display. This mode will still not exit if you interact with another program, allowing a user to get the most use out of their pixels.
Since our first release on December 26, 2010, the extension has seen five updates released. We have seen a large demand for the extension coming from Russia and quickly localized the extension for Russian. All changes are now internalization-friendly.
As this new release introduces some instructional text on how to make the video use the full display, I also want to take the opportunity to describe another way to make your video use the full display. There are two ways that you can make the Google Chrome web browser go into full screen mode. The first would be to click on the web page or the address bar, then press F11 on your keyboard. The second would be to click on the wrench menu, then click the full screen button as seen in the screenshot to the right.
When exiting from browser full screen, move the mouse to the top of the display and wait for the “Exit full screen (F11)” text to appear. Clicking on the text will exit browser full screen mode.
Install the extension today and join the over 300 users that have started to go “full screen” the easy way.
