It can be a pain trying to locate the audio source when you have dozens of tabs open, which is why most major browsers show a small icon when audio is playing in any one of them. Chrome got this feature last year and that made life easier for millions of users across the globe. These users can instantly see at a glance which tab the audio was playing in.
The thing is, there was no easy way to mute it. It was either close the tab or switch to it and manually pause the audio. Now there is an easier way to mute it in the latest Chrome release.
Chrome 46 is the latest version of Google’s internet browser. Instead of simply showing which tab is making all the noise, the browser now lets you do something about it. Just right click on the tab where the audio is playing and click on mute. It’s that simple. In fact it doesn’t get any easier. And the problem can be very annoying.
Sometimes you don’t want to close the tab just because of audio after all. This makes things much better for users of the browser. The company has been testing this feature for awhile now and it is ready.
