Overview

This extension mutes previous audible tabs when a new tab starts making sound. Toggle mute current tab: Cmd+Shift+8

This extension lets you control mute status of multiple tabs. Often while you're listening to something from one tab, another tab starts to make sound. This can be annoying. So this extension will automatically mute the previous tab that was making sound. It works like a stack - think a stack of cards, only the one on top is visible - similarly, only the last tab that's making sound will be allowed to stay unmuted. Once the current audible tab stops making any sounds, the previous tab will be unmuted again. There are a few keyboard shortcuts you can use: Cmd+Shift+0 -> Mute all tabs. Cmd+Shift+8 -> Mute or unmute the current tab. Cmd+Shift+9 -> Unmute all tabs (although, if you have multiple audible tabs, only one will remain unmuted, rest will be muted by extension.) Any tabs you mute with these shortcuts will not be unmuted by the extension. You have to unmute that tab with one of the shortcuts. Added an Easter Egg feature - press Cmd+Shift+O to try it. It's not very relevant to this extension, but I don't want to create a new extension just for this functionality which I need.

My only complaint is the icon is too dark I only see a space where it should be.

Hi - my guess is that you are using a dark background. The icon has transparent background and black outline - if displayed against a dark background, it might not be visible. Try changing Chrome theme perhaps? You also don't really need to interact with the icon - it can be stowed away without losing its functionality. Cheers!

Would be even better if, when I switch to a tab that is NOT playing audio, that it muted the tab that WAS playing audio. When I switch to a tab that is not playing audio, I don't want to hear anything. Like "Mute all inactive tabs" works in Firefox. Thanks,

You could use the mute all tabs shortcut Cmd+Shift+0 manually. By default if the extension were to mute inactive tabs, then people would not be able to listen to whatever tab is playing music. I play music non-stop on one tab or another, and that tab typically doesn't need to be the active tab. Cheers!
