Click on the Chrome menu on the top right (three horizontal lines) and choose Settings.
 Scroll to the bottom and click on Show advanced settings....
Now, scroll again to the bottom and look for the Use hardware acceleration when available checkbox. Uncheck it.

I just did that and the status bar at the bottom still disappears as soon as a page is loaded. Do you know if it's possible to make it always be visible? I think that's what the OP may be after.

Problem unclear

Can you clarify if what you're trying to accomplish is making the Status Bar be always visible?

Turning off Hardware acceleration makes it appear, but it also disappears as soon as a page is loaded.
To my knowladge the fact that the status bar disappears is a known feature/bug. I don't think that the is a way to always show it.
