Why do not add "<meta name="mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes">" in www.openstreetmap.org webpage in order to transform Openstreetmap website into fullscreen web-app on Android (with chrome).

See https://developer.chrome.com/multidevice/android/installtohomescreen for instruction.

Fine! :-) … direct link is more useful (for people reading this here and want to read on): https://trac.openstreetmap.org/ticket/5218

it might be best to discuss this suggestion with the developers of the website. Go to https://trac.openstreetmap.org/ , login with your osm.org account, click the "add a ticket" for the website (use type=enhancement). Before it may be good to search in the existing tickets to see if this has already been discussed.

The OSM website is designed to work fairly well on mobile devices (and in my experience generally does).

If you just want one map style, without the ability to search or view data etc., then a simple leaflet-based map is only a few lines of code, and you can add meta tags to your heart's content!
