Try Megazoomer
Authored by: Viridian on Jan 23, '07 07:24:06PM
John Gruber of Daring Fireball posted a link to Megazoomer just today. Megazoomer is a freeware SIMBL plug-in which, when toggled with Command-Return, enables system-wide zooming of any window to full screen, hiding the Dock and Menu bar simultaneously. Pressing the hot key combo again will return the window to normal. Moving the cursor to the top of the screen will cause the Menu bar to appear, but the Dock will only return when the window is returned to normal. I downloaded and installed it, and it works beautifully. Caveat: it only works with Cocoa apps; Carbon apps such as Finder, iTunes, Photoshop etc, are out of luck.

Why the hell would you want to go full-screen in a document window, unless you're some sort of one-track minded PC user?

Mac windows don't maximize--they zoom to fit their contents. Where it makes sense to present an application full-screen, such as in QuickTime Player or the iTunes visualizer, that option is provided. Anywhere else, maximized windows are sacrilege.
