Is it possible to adjust the volume of individual tabs in Google Chrome?

I've found an extension that allows the volume to be muted, but it does not allow variable volumes.

Unless you break each tab into a separate browser, it is not possible, as windows sound control will just see chrome as one browser, not the multiple tabs within the browser.

Breaking it into another window didn't work for me - it still only has one Chrome option in the Windows volume mixer –  ChrisB Aug 21 '14 at 15:33

You could run Chrome Canary at the same time as Chrome; and then use the Windows volume mixer to turn up or down the volume for either app, independently.
