Mac OS X 10.8 or higher support the New "Full Screen"(Control+Command+F) mode much better experience than "maximize the window" and current (Host+F) Full Screen mode. The current full screen(Host+F) make the guest OS screen full filled on major screen, it will overlay on the top for major desktop and dock. But the New Full Screen (Control+Command+F) mode make the guest OS screen full fill the new created virtual screen/space, it can use 3 fingers to slide left/right to switch between major OSX desktop and virtual box guest OS and other "new full screen" applications such as safari browser, App Store,games, email client and etc.
