The download history is displayed when a download is finished. When there is no download history, the icon is not displayed so that no unnecessary space is taken.

Open bookmarks from a new tab

Bookmarks can be opened by pulling down the new tab button located at the right-hand side of the tabs. By not displaying a bookmark bar in this way, you can access bookmarks without any space being wasted.
The bookmark bar that only has a color displayed when necessary
