For those of you not running Google’s Chrome browser, I’d encourage you to jump on the bandwagon. One of the best features available in the latest Chrome is the ability to mute sites that autoplay videos — I’m looking at you local news.

Now, if you right-click on the offending browser tab, you can permanently mute the site.

Continue browsing in peace, and you’re welcome.

Thank you for mute site.

I had heard about this but had not implemented it until this post. Used it on all of my news sites with auto play videos. Browsing is better and more efficient now. Thx for heads up.

Let's discuss this (you can use Markdown in your comment)
