And you know why I have so many tabs open? I'm not going to sit here and watch 50 ads open before my video starts with the ad on the front of it.

I'd prefer that it kill background tabs on desktop like in Android.

Nothing more annoying than trying to figure out which tab is blaring autoplay shiat at me.

There's usually a little speaker icon on the tab in particular that is blaring the offending noise.
Or at least on my desktop.

That's a recent addition (a couple of point releases ago).

// I just disable javascript (via noscript), people don't do direct video embeds anymore and their crap doesn't function without javascript.

Back in my day you did a tab and you didn't need the farking internet after that.

I use a combo of Adblock Plus and Ghostery (tracker blocking) - I absolutely cannot stand ads of any kind...well, save for GEICO

Chrome tells me when a tab is playing a video/making noise.

Can it detect when I haven't yet viewed the tab and not allow it to make noise until it's viewed?

/That "can it" isn't "is it possible?"

I installed an extension that prevents HTML5 autoplay yesterday. Working well so far, it finally stopped CNN from immediately blaring their videos. Youtube videos don't start automatically, but that is just fine. And Netflix will not go to the next episode without a click now, but I can live with that.
