Overview

Re-enables the "Mute Tab" feature once found in Chrome itself.

Once upon a time, Chrome had a feature hidden away in chrome://flags to allow users to mute individual tabs by clicking the speaker icon next to the tab's title. This was deemed "not good enough", as the Chrome developers wanted to remove the need for users to manually control tab audio, so it was removed in favour of the "Mute Site" feature. Chrome can't yet automatically determine which tabs should be playing audio, so I made this extension to let the user make that decision. The button's in a different place due to Chrome API limitations, but apart from that, this extension should work exactly as the old "Mute Tab" feature did. Having trouble? Email support: support@tab.muter.computer If you find Tab Muter useful, feel free to leave me a tip: https://ko-fi.com/sersorrel This extension is free software; the source code is available at https://github.com/sersorrel/mute-tab.

I dunno ab all the negative reviews, but i've been using this extension for a while now and I haven't faced any issues or bugs. One thing I'd like to see tho is a shortcut to make it easier to mute tabs, but that's just me being lazy. otherwise 10/10 software.

Glad it's working well for you! You can set a keyboard shortcut in Chrome's settings – navigate to chrome://extensions/shortcuts and scroll down til you find Tab Muter, then you can set a shortcut for "Activate the extension".

Works great in Chromium Ungoogled (`brew install eloston-chromium` via Homebrew on macOS). Thank you!
