Google Chrome will soon allow users to permanently mute websites, a feature that will bring joy to millions who suffer through auto-playing videos on (annoying) websites every day. Google Chrome is a freeware web browser developed by Google.
The Chrome team is currently experimenting with a setting to mute/unmute a website directly from the Page Info bubble. This will give you more control about which website is allowed to throw sound at you automatically.
Google Chrome Mute and Unmute Setting
Google’s François Beaufort announced the addition this morning, noting that the Chrome team is still “experimenting with a setting to mute/unmute a website directly from the Page Info bubble.”
Right now, you can mute tabs in Chrome tabs by right clicking on them, but the process is canceled out once you close the tab or Chrome. Once this feature makes its way from Canary to the public build of Chrome, which will take a few weeks at the least, you’ll be able to put websites on permanent lockdown.
