One of the nice features that Silverlight supports is the ability to go "full screen" and effectively take over the entire screen of a computer (hiding everything else from sight - including the browser frame).  This can be very useful when building immersive UI experiences, games, rich video players, etc.

For a nice example of this feature in action, make sure to check out the Fox Movies Sample on www.silverlight.net:

Once the page loads and the movie starts playing, double-click on the video surface in the middle to switch into full-screen mode (note: the screen-shot above is not in full-screen but rather browser mode).  You can then hit the escape key to switch back into normal browser viewing.
