There is a good news for all of us who suffers through annoying autoplaying videos on websites every day. Google Chrome will soon allow users to permanently mute such websites, the feature is currently available in the experimental Canary build of the browser.
François Beaufort from Google announced the addition, notably that the Chrome team is still “experimenting with a setting to mute/unmute a website directly from the Page Info bubble.”
Currently, 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 with just a few clicks.
