Often times with applications full-screen mode does exactly what I want, cutting out optional items (like URL bars, bookmarks, play/pause buttons, status bars, menu bars, etc). The problem is the size isn't constrained to anything and takes the whole screen. Can i3 trick the window into composing it with something like picture-in-picture where the window takes up the whole tile in file screen mode but does not take up the whole screen?
I would like to open up VLC and Chrome and hit "F11" and have the window constraints to area I designate with i3.
If this isn't possible with i3, is it possible with any tiling window manager?
