View modes

The view-mode media feature accepts the following enumerated values. Each view mode is defined to be exclusive of the others. For your reference, each value is hyperlinked to its place in the online W3C view-mode media feature webpage.

Value Description Support
windowed This value describes a web application running in a windowed manner, which is to say with chrome and without occupying the entire screen area. Yes
floating This value describes a web application providing a more immersive interface, running in a windowed manner but without chrome, and with the viewport's initial background being transparent such that other system items (other applications, the display's background...) can be seen through parts of the viewport that are not being painted to. Yes
fullscreen This value describes a web application that is occupying the entirety of the display, including the parts normally excluded from the screen area (e.g. a fullscreen video) and without any chrome. Yes
maximized This value describes a web application that is occupying the entirety of the screen area but with chrome. Yes
minimized This value describes a web application docked or otherwise minimised, but with a dynamic graphical representation being available nevertheless (i.e., the application is not entirely hidden, or maybe its icon is still shown and it has control over what it contains). This may correspond for instance to a thumbnail of the application's content being shown. Yes
