Being able to switch off the sound of a specific tab, by clicking on the little animation which already exists on the tab icon when some sound is detected.
In the current developer builds, we can now see a specific tab icon when there is some sound on a web page.
This is a great improvement, because automatic video adverts are now very common, and incredibly annoying.
However, not only some sounds are automatically played by some websites, but sometimes there is even no way to turn it off until the advert is finished!
If I don't want to close the tab, it may be great to be able to switch of the sound of a specific tab.
Use case example
- I am listening to spotify on a tab (so I don't want to mute all Opera using my OS)
- I open a tab with an automatically played video that I can't pause for a few seconds (annoying advert, for example)
- I want to mute this last tab until the advert is finished
