Make Chrome’s Download Manager Use Less Space in the Browser Window

Friday, March 21st, 2014

If you’re bugged by the amount of real estate that Chrome’s default download manager takes up on your screen, here’s an alternative approach …

Whenever you download a file using the Google Chrome web browser, it is displayed in a bar at the bottom of the browser window. This bar remains open until you close it, and while reappear with every new download that you make. While some may like how Chrome handles downloads, others may prefer a solution that requires less interaction and takes up less screen estate. One option that you have is to run a download manager which taps into Chrome directly, so that all downloads are automatically bypassing Chrome’s internal download manager.
