In Google Chrome, can I mute sound in a single tab? Suppose a tab has a youtube video that I would like to silence. However, I still want to hear the audio from another tab.
There is an extension for that (sort of): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/nmkbaaijgpppbokgnhhoakihofedkgcc
it's okay in that it works most of the time. however chrome still uses a shared instance of flash (for example) in order to run faster, but it makes it very difficult to stop one part of that shared instance. IE (ugh) opens a new instance per tab, and you can mute individual tabs. you can give this a spin, but as far as I know it's as good as you'll get.
