In Chrome there are sometimes various bars, like the download bar, translation bar, remember password bar, etc. How do I put keyboard focus on these bars? I want to be able to use Chrome while touching the mouse as little as possible.

Based on the hotkey info here: it doesn't seem that there is a way to interact with the Downloads bar like you want, but there is the shortcut to open the Downloads tab, Ctrl+J. Used in combination with regular keyboard navigation, you can navigate through your downloads on that page. It appears F6 and Shift+F6 will navigate between webpage content and address/bookmark bars. I haven't tested this with the Translate bar.
