Can I disable the Chrome status bar pop-ups?

I’m not sure if status bar is the correct term for the bar, but I mean the little tiny gray box that pops up in the very bottom left when you’re hovering over a link or when something is loading.

I don’t want it off all the time, but when I watch TV through CBS’s website it’s constantly popping up as the site is loading this or that in the background, even while the video is in full screen. It’s an annoying distraction.

Doesn’t seem like it’s possible, unfortunately.

Press F11 for full-screen browsing? Oh, nvm the modal in the bottom-left.
