That depends on how the UA chooses to handle it. But this proposed
fullscreen API is based on the idea that the fullscreen content "takes over"
the toplevel browsing context to which it belongs. (The content is styled to
fill the IFRAME, and the IFRAME element is styled to fill the parent
document's viewport.)

"Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for
they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures
every day to see if what Paul said was true." [Acts 17:11]
