Preview in full screen without address bar of browser.

Hello, a question about displayed full screen.
I use preview over wifi.
My version of Android is 4.1.1

When I run the application, the browser address bar remains and prevents the window to look bigger, this happens with Chrome on Android and in the Android standard browser.

I want to see it full screen but this bothers me.
I have options enabled in browsers "allow full screen".

One solution is to move the window down to clear the browser address bar, but the game screen can not be moved downward as is done with a website.
Any solution to remove the address bar of the browser?

@Mirlas,
I found a solution that works for me in Chrome for Android... it's not perfect, but darn close.

When previewing the game in Chrome, open the browser menu and click on "Add to home screen".
What this does is create a web app icon on your home screen that you can launch without any address bar or options panel.

Web apps will launch full-screen with no vestiges of a browser. The URL will not be present, nor will traditional browser actions such as bookmarking and navigation controls.

More info:

Granted, the status bar is still visible. But I think some theming apps, like ADW or GoLauncher, can hide that. Not too sure though.

This served me, but when there is a change of layout, the screen returns to the address bar!.

I think this should not happen.

I know that function but my version of Chrome does not have this function, I can not install the latest version of chrome because run too slow in my mobile.


I'll see what I can do, use the browser object served me but the full screen ended when the layout was changed.
Thanks for the help!
