How to disable annoying sound on webpage

This post is also available in: Slovenian

On many websites when you visit the page automatically activates sound advertisement, video or audio. It’s disturbing, and certainly annoying when we have a bunch of tabs in our browser, and we do not know exactly on which tab is sound. What to do in such a case?

We have many solutions from mute sound on the computer (we do not want) to handheld stop sound (until the next refresh a web page) or you can use a little trick, which is unfortunately only available in Google Chrome.


Right mouse button on the tab opens a menu where you choose the optional muting tab and we have peace and quiet again.

Other browsers like Safari, IE and Firefox not have this mute option.
