Find that noisy tab!


If you're having a particularly stressful day and there are around 435,445 tabs open in your browser, you know how irritating it is when one starts playing music, whether it's a particularly annoying website or an ad at the side of a blog.

Well now a developer has created an extension for Google Chrome which finds out where the offending music is coming from. Mute Tab scans all of your open webpages for the offending HTML tags that might be causing the problem and changes the icon on that page to a little musical note so you can go and close it or mute it.

Granted it won't work on every website due to plugins and things that can't be detected in the HTML, but it's certainly a nice idea and beats banging your head against your keyboard.
