YouTube has added ‘Scroll for details’ option to videos playing on the Web in full screen. While watching a video in full screen on YouTube, without needing to exit the full screen the user can now able to scroll down below to see the description, check comments and videos coming next, you need to scroll up to return to full screen again. The change may cause confusion to users whether they’re in a theater or full-screen mode, if you don’t see the browser UI, then you’re definitely in full screen.
