Visible Downloads progress in Location/Status Bar

I dont like keeping the (downloads) panels 'tab' open due to real estate
But most other browsers show the download progress one way or another.
Can we have V show progress either simulating page load progress in maybe another color or whatever; or have it in the bottom Status Bar ?
Right now I have to hit Ctrl+J to see what is being downloaded; when V was absolutely silent about this, I hit the button 3 times and there were 3 downloads going on
@rojaviv In Settings, Downloads, you can set the Downloads panel to open automatically. I prefer the setting to notify on completion. That takes no real-estate, but lets you know when the download is available.

@pesala Yeah I also set it to NOT open auto too, as then we have to close it etc etc; in this case it was an .exe and even though the download was over, I never got the notif; as it was waiting for OS permission to open an .exe
And problem with only notification is if we miss it, its gone
All I am saying is in this case (as in yours) and especially if it is a large download it would be nice to know something is happening
The Download progress is shown in the Icon Bar
