chrome PROTIP: noisy tab icon can be a mute button

So I managed to get a little bit of reddit juice with
That Google Chrome "what tab is being noisy?" speaker icon should function as a mute button.
But then longandshortofit followed up with
enter "chrome://flags/#enable-tab-audio-muting" into a tab, hit enter, click enable.
Done and Done
Wow! Interesting that that isn't the default, especially because the icon is pretty clear when it gets muted.

I guess it's a beta feature that might be promoted.


  1. Not working in my current version of the browser.

  2. D'ohh! I don't know much about the nitty gritty of chrome like that. Is it up to date? Is the option there, just not getting the results when you activate it? (If so did you try restarting?)
