By presentation mode you mean fullscreen (F11)? I had a quick search and couldn't find anything conclusive. It's an OSX specific thing?

I don't have a Windows machine or VM, but it looks like full-screen mode on Linux is the same as presentation mode on OS X: the UI is completely hidden unless you move the mouse to the top of the screen. In addition to presentation mode, Chrome for OS X has a separate full-screen mode that always shows the tabs and buttons.

Thanks! Looks like Chrome doesn't do this on Windows but it's similar to how Firefox has always done fullscreen.

In OS X, "Full screen" triggers the Lion native full screen mechanism. In this mode Chrome is full-screen but you still see the toolbar. "Presentation mode" is more like what "Full screen" did before Lion, or how full screen behaves on other OSes: no toolbar.
