Chrome Shows Which Tab Is Making a Noise: If you’ve read the previous post about the animated YouTube favicon, you should know I was wrong. It’s not a new YouTube feature, it’s a new Chrome feature that tries to detect the tabs that are producing sounds and adds an animation to the favicons.

The feature is currently available in the Canary channel and the latest Chromium builds, so it’s not yet ready for primetime. For example, Chrome animates the Google Music favicon even if there’s no music playing, but the feature works well for YouTube videos.

While it’s nice to be able to tell which tabs are noisy, the animated favicons are distracting and many people find them annoying. Why not add a widget that lets you control the volume for each tab or mute some of tabs?

{ Thanks, everyone. }
