    I'm a bit confused about the motivation for this. Clicking what used to be the 'Maximize' button already makes the program go fullscreen, hiding both the dock and menu bar in the process. What advantage does hiding the menu bar in normal use have other than increasing the effort required to get to options and information in non-fullscreen programs?

      Less cognitive load throughout your daily usage?

      My menubar is pretty crowded, but I guess I would freak out for about 2 weeks while I get used to it

      I think the full screen mode you're describing is Spaces-level of full screen. That is, you won't have two apps sharing the same desktop. All or nothing.

      I think this allows you to position multiple app windows however you need while reclaiming that eighth-ish inch of space and/or removing the visual/mental burden of your menu bar.
