Is there a Linux WM that supports management of window by application itself? I would like to have the following:

Instead of:

With a small screen laptop, it would be nice to save some extra screen space. I tried searching on the web, but got no results.

Well... I found the answer. Apparently, it seems to be in-app settings and it is independent on WM. Posting here the solution for VS Code and Firefox for anyone who is interested:

  • VS Code: The relevant setting is window.titleBarStyle: "custom"
  • Firefox: Menu->Customize->Uncheck "Title Bar"
  • Chrome: Is set by default without the WM title bar

Tested with Openbox WM. Not sure about stability on other WMs...
