Google Chrome Status Bar

Posted by Garth on Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Having just switched to Chrome cuz Firefox's rampant CPU utilization was annoying me, I was immediately struck with another annoyance.  Chrome is lacking a proper status bar.  It truncates long URLs at the END and cuts off any query string variables.  Not very nice for developers.

So, I took it upon myself to create a little extension that shows the full href attribute of any <a> elements in an unobtrusive status bar of my own.  Hope it helps someone out there.

If you're talking about the download bar, I don't think there is a way to remove it. Same goes for the built-in status bubble.
