Google Chrome is definitely one of the most popular internet browsers of this time and Google is keeping no stones unturned to make it even better. Well, the company is currently focusing so that Chrome identifies the annoying sound emitting tab on the browser. Well, I am sure, that people reading this, get annoyed when they hear those pesky auto playing advertisements while browsing through internet, just like me.
Tabs with sound playing within them will contain an animated audio indicator. This animation will have a six frame throbber picture on the tab icon itself. According to the latest code review conducted, the animation is very short at this point of time, but, still good enough for testing purposes. It is expected that the aesthetics of the animation will get changed if this tweak is included as part of a public release.
Now, there are several factors to consider and one of them is: tracking tabs that are currently active. If you are not getting it, let me explain it to you in simpler words. Suppose, you are listening to music in one tab, however, on the other tab, you have Facebook open. Now, the tab playing the sound is definitely not the more active of the two, however, you still need it as you want to continue listening to the songs.
The feature is reportedly a part of the Canary Build already. However, there is no guarantee that the same will ever be released for actual users publicly.
Do you feel that an audio indicator for the tabs works? Do you think that such a feature will be very useful to the users? Make sure to speak on this matter using the comments feature. I will definitely like to hear you all out.
