  • (2022-01-03) Ashley Kline: Someone help me. The download bar is still there. What do I do?
  • (2021-12-30) Carlo St. Regis: I love this thing so much. Works perfectly. My downloads just appear in the stack in my dock with the system animation and I don't have to close that stupid bar taking up 10% of my browser 30 times a day.
  • (2021-12-27) Alexandru Pănoiu: Does what it says, and in so doing contributes to making the world just a little better.
  • (2021-12-18) hippo potamus: Doesn't work. DL bar still present. Useless. The positive reviews must not be using the most recent chrome version or are fake.
  • (2021-11-23) Swgwmshar Basumatary: It's works... Amazing...
  • (2021-11-23) Sam: I just downloaded 2 files and the bar is still there. Does this extension not work anymore?
  • (2021-11-17) Kevin Godsey: IT WORKED!!! Added extension to Chrome (I'm using Chrome Beta), checked any applicable options, closed and then re-opened the application. Found an image to "test-download" and the bar did NOT appear at the bottom of the window. I followed up by checking my downloads folder and sure enough, it WAS THERE! Eureka! Thank you for this simple yet mind-easing solution.
  • (2021-10-31) fos1x: work perfect as i want
  • (2021-10-29) Nick Co: Awesome.
  • (2021-10-27) K.C. Marshall: This is the extension to hide the large, ugly, persistent download notification status bar in chrome. As always, you can just type Ctrl-J to see your downloads when you want to.
  • (2021-09-30) Barrow: Cumple lo que dice en el título pero es peligroso porque te descarga cosas y no te das cuenta... Entonces es mejor activar la opción de preguntar antes de descargar cualquier archivo
  • (2021-09-18) Jeremy: Won't work in Incognigto, but otherwise works fine. Wish there was a ping or something where the button was so you would at least know your download started
  • (2021-09-17) clarkcavers: Most definitely does not work.
  • (2021-09-11) AlexifeuLP: No Problems :D
  • (2021-08-31) Dr Tiga: works as intended!
  • (2021-06-15) Philip Groet: Simple and perfectly working. I looked at source, most simple extension you could imagine and does not load unsafe scripts/adware.
  • (2021-06-11) Mahmoud Jimmy: YOU ARE A LEGEND THANKS MAN
  • (2021-06-11) nosp pson: Doesn't work, bar still opens.
  • (2021-06-09) Kennethosaurus: Doesn't work
  • (2021-06-07) kw scot: Simple and graceful. A user for 3 years. When moving from Chrome to Brave, forgot to install it, and soon miss it. Thank you!
  • (2021-04-22) Daniel B.: I can't thank you enough for this. I hate the huge amount of space the download bar takes.
  • (2021-03-25) Susan Ganiebny: Thank you so much, I can now download in Chrome instead of switching to another browser and pasting the url in the address bar! The bar was so annoying, why do you even want to know what you just downloaded unless you have a short memory span.
  • (2021-03-17) Vinh Nguyễn Văn: working ok in 03/2021 . thanks bro

  • (2021-03-03) marci: 5 stars... Not enough! Thank you for a perfect tool. That stupid oversized bar no longer gets in the way, and you don't want to know everything I'm doing in exchange for this great tool... Now that's how extensions should be. Thank you so much!

  • (2020-12-11) Sergio Moná: Muy pero muy bueno, tal como lo leí desde el articulo: CÓMO DESACTIVAR LA BARRA DE DESCARGAS EN CHROME - Read more at: https://www.vichaunter.org/como-se-hace/desactivar-la-barra-descargas-chrome De inmediato se fue la barra de descargas.

  • (2020-07-30) Alexander Ruiz: Does exactly what it says. Nice. Hated that bar
  • (2020-03-29) J. M.: Doesn't ask for needless permissions. It just clears the download bar. It also doesn't appear to take up any memory at all. All the other extensions I've tried ask for extra permissions and eat up memory doing God knows what in the background.
  • (2020-03-27) Dawid Berne: It hides the download bar as it was designed to do. Recommend.
