Well now for the low, low price of free you can put an end to those inconsiderate noise makers! It's a fairly new feature in Chrome where you can "mute" a site, or every site, so that they no longer start blaring some stupid video or ad when you're trying to surf the web in peace (or at work). To change it site by site, just do this. 1. Right click the "Speaker" icon on the tab (If there's no audio playing on the site, there will be no Speaker icon)2. Select "Mute Site" 3. Now that site will never auto play audio unless you "Unmute" the site similar to how you muted it. But if you're like me, and don't want any sites playing audio without your permission. You can mute all the sites, and then unmute only the ones where it makes sense - YouTube, Netflix, Gator Country etc. 1. Go to Settings in Chrome via the menu 2. Click "Advanced" down near the bottom 3. Click "Content Settings" 4. Click "Sound" Or just copy this link, and paste in address bar to go there directly (hotlinking doesn't work to non http addresses) chrome://settings/content/sound 5. Click "Mute sites that play sound" 6. Close that tab. Now you'll have to "Unmute" any site that you want to play sounds, because they'll all be muted by default. No more following a link only to have some unwanted audio start playing while you try to find where the hell it's coming from and turn it off while everyone in the meeting you're ignoring stares at you.
