This is Facebook’s best improvement to their photo capabilities, yet still has some limitations. The full-screen photo feature is only available on Google Chrome and the latest version of Firefox. Users can click the small arrow in the upper right hand corner to view the full-screen photos.
There’s obviously a growing demand for web users to view photos in truly high resolution, full-screen mode that we at FullScreenPhotos.com are all too familiar with.
Why settle for a small thumbnail that sacrifices photo quality? Most photos allow click-to-enlarge functionality, but are only enlarged in the browser window and not in true full-screen mode. Kudos to Facebook for a step in the right direction.
