One of the best features that Google Chrome has come up with is a mute tab option on its browser to help the user mute the AutoPlay sounds or videos while surfing across different sites.
Many a times while we surf through multiple sites the sudden blaring of music or video leaves us perplexed. The user if at a public place or at office is bewildered while he or she tries to hastily search through multiple tabs to find the source of the sound playing on auto mode.
Google Chrome's new option to mute tabs is now easily available with a simple right click on the top left corner of the page, which puts all the AutoPlay videos or sounds to mute unless you unmute it again.
Once a tab is muted, a loudspeaker icon with a cross appears on that tab to show that no sounds will be played on the portal opened via that tab.
The only inconvenience remains that either the user will have to mute all the tabs to prevent AutoPlay sounds or search which tab is playing the video and then mute it.
