Easy Elements Fullscreen Plugin with jQuery

A jQuery plugin that allows you to open any element in fullscreen mode in all modern browsers like Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera. For those older browsers don't support this feature,  the element will be just stretched to fill the screen without switching to fullscreen.

How to use it:

1. Include jQuery library and fullscreen.js

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.fullscreen-0.3.2.min.js"></script>

2. Markup

<div id="fullscreen">
<p>Your browser <span id="support">doesn't support</span> FullScreen API.</p>
<p>This block is <span id="state">not</span> in fullscreen mode. <a href="#" class="requestfullscreen">Click to open it in fullscreen</a><a href="#" class="exitfullscreen" style="display: none">Click to exit fullscreen</a>.</p>

3. Call the plugin

$(function() {
	// check native support
	$('#support').text($.fullscreen.isNativelySupported() ? 'supports' : 'doesn\'t support');
	// open in fullscreen
	$('#fullscreen .requestfullscreen').click(function() {
		return false;
	// exit fullscreen
	$('#fullscreen .exitfullscreen').click(function() {
		return false;
	// document's event
	$(document).bind('fscreenchange', function(e, state, elem) {
		// if we currently in fullscreen mode
		if ($.fullscreen.isFullScreen()) {
			$('#fullscreen .requestfullscreen').hide();
			$('#fullscreen .exitfullscreen').show();
		} else {
			$('#fullscreen .requestfullscreen').show();
			$('#fullscreen .exitfullscreen').hide();
		$('#state').text($.fullscreen.isFullScreen() ? '' : 'not');
