android fullscreen is gone

I always end up with a tedious white bar on the side, it impairs the visual and the cardboard...

that's a known Chrome bug - but I have recently found a solution for it:

krpano uses the standard HTML5 fullscreen API, but since some Android Chrome versions that one acts strangely and doesn't fill the full screen and sometimes also scrolls the view wrongly shows the page background color (in your case white, in default krpano templates black).

The workaround/solution is to use the non-standard 'Webkit'-prefixed-fullscreen API, that works correctly and fills the full screen. Normally it should act like the standard unprefixed one, but Chrome has done something wrong there. Additionally there now also another new fullscreen API support since Chrome 71, I will test and add that one too.

That means with the next krpano release this problem should be fixed (but technically its a Chrome bug).

Best regards,
