Comment(by stippi):

 I am not convinced yet. The "zoom" button has always been an "alternative
 size" button. Not a "maximize" button. So that a window maximizes when
 pressing it should not be the expected behavior, rather it should be
 expected that the button changes to an alternative window size that makes
 sense and is most useful. In MediaPlayer, it's obviously to take over the
 complete screen. Why should reading web pages full-screen still waste
 space and attention on the window border? I really don't understand why
 that is useful. Perhaps with multiple full-screen windows and tab sliding.
 But that involves so much manual interaction by the user (as long as the
 system doesn't offer this as global concept), that I don't think manually
 resizing the window is much of an extra step. I'd really rather have the
 full-screen option that users will enjoy most, like in a media center type
 of situation, or just reading websites without any distraction, as the
 most easily accessible feature.
