When you use Google Chrome on OS X and download some stuff while web-surfing, a tab shows up on the bottom on which the downloaded contents and its progress status will be displayed.

However, I don't like to bother to closing the tab after the download is successfully done by moving the cursor and tapping on the x icon.

Is it possible to close the tab via a shortcut? Or ideally, is it possible to automatically close the tab once the download has been done?

There are multiple methods given, including an extension that can do this automatically, as well as an Applescript that can run as a service and be activated with a keyboard shortcut.
