This bug/misfeature has been reported for ages. After saving some media loacally, Chromium/Google Chrome webbrowsers display a download bar at the bottom of the screen, which persists until clicked away manually by the user. The only official way to get rid of it by keyboard shortcut is to open a download history window [Ctrl-J], tabbing to 'Clear all' [Tab][Tab][Enter], and closing the 'Downloads' tab [Ctrl-W]; this has the nasty side effect of purging the download history.
How would you like some easier way of doing this?

Chromium Clicky - chcl

Unannoy Chromium's/Google Chrome's download bar in linux. CHCl3 is the chemical formula for Chloroform. Thus 'chromium clicky - chcl' is chloroform for the download bar.

This tool (hopefully) warpes the pointer to the 'X', clicks button one and restores the pointer's original position, reclaiming precious screen surface by hiding the download bar.

TL;DR: close the download bar with a keyboard shortcut.

Awesome Window Manager

This is the configuration line I use in Awesome WM:
awful.key({ modkey }, "c", function() awful.util.spawn( "chcl" ) end),
