Chrome option to permanently mute websites
September 5, 2017, 4:50 pm

Google Chrome will soon allow users to permanently mute websites, a feature that will bring joy to millions who suffer through

The annoying repeated auto-play of videos on websites could soon be a thing of the past, at least on Chrome browsers. Google is reportedly working on a feature that will soon allow users to permanently mute websites. The feature, which is currently available in the experimental Canary build of the browser, could soon be rolled out to the general public.

Google’s François Beaufort announced the addition last week, noting 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 cancelled 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 will be able to put websites on permanent lockdown with just a few clicks.
