Easily control the volume of your tabs
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.
