    Is there a way to hide the notification/status bar while browsing? Id like it to dissappear when Im using it to watch a flash movie.

    Use Dolphin Browser HD, there is an option for full screen which hides the notification bar.

    I like dolphin, but it seems a little bloated. I prefer lighter browsers. I am using Skyfire now, is there an option like that in SF?

    I don't think that's an option in Skyfire.

    xScope is a lot lighter than Dolphin and has the option to hide the notification bar.

    Cool, thanks.

    Gotta pay for that though right?

    The old version is available at xscope.net - the new version is nice, though, and I think supporting developers with a few bucks for an app that gets used every day is very worthwhile.

    You can use the old version, or give the new version's trial a go and see if you like it enough to buy it.

    Just realized skyfire has an option to hide the bar as well, BUT it doesnt have an option to change text size. Gotta find a happy medium.
