Eas­ily con­trol the vol­ume of your tabs

Web User - - Best New Browser Tools -

Chrome’s vol­ume con­trols are dis­ap­point­ingly ba­sic – it shows you which tabs are cur­rently play­ing au­dio and lets you si­lence them by rightclick­ing and choosing ‘ Mute tab’. Thank­fully, there’s now a much bet­ter op­tion for web users who like to lis­ten as they browse in the form of a new ex­ten­sion called Vol­ume Mas­ter ( bit.ly/ vol­ume430). This sim­ple but use­ful tool lets you con­trol the sound em­a­nat­ing from mul­ti­ple open tabs via a sin­gle panel. You can use the slider to boost the vol­ume of the cur­rent tab by up to 600% or take it down to si­lence; and click the ti­tle of another tab to in­crease or de­crease its noise level in­stantly. It’s an ef­fec­tive way to deal with sud­den loud ad­verts and videos that make you jump out of your skin.
