Bing.coms most pointless feature

If you use Bing.com regularly you may have noticed a new feature rolled out recently. A full screen mode which puts the great pictures that many people visit Bing for at the forefront, filling the browser with no distractions.

Its a great idea in theory. The pictures are fantastic and sometime you want to admire them distraction free. However, in practice it falls a little flat.

As soon as you click on the search bar full screen mode exits and you are back to how it was.

Hopefully, the great team at Bing have a solution in the future to allow us to enjoy the pictures in full screen mode but also to allow us to search bing.com which you would assume they would want us to do.
