How to hide top panel in elementary os? This is boring when I maximize a browser and see top black panel over browser.

I have a fork of wingpanel with autohide.

Unless you are using Archlinux, clone the git repository, then build and install according to the README.

For Archlinux, it is packaged in the AUR: wingpanel-standalone-git


You can achieve this if you toggle fullscreen mode of the application you are using. You can set a keyboard shortcut for this in System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Window > Toggle Fullscreen and it works for all applications not only for the web browsers.
