    I've been way less nuanced about this.

    Frik'n anti pattern. I hate it when they screw with my perception by making a top bar that changes position. Ridiculously annoying when reading.

    YES. I'M LOOKING AT YOU, CHROME.

    .edit: [rant some more] actually, this is just as annoying as those bleeps that pop up a "share" menu as soon as you select some text.

    Scrolling, hovering, and selecting. Three things that are not supposed to do anything, and (some) people use while reading to indicate how far they've gotten. [/rant some more]
