Isn’t it annoying when you’ve got multiple tabs open with videos that play automatically, but you haven’t downloaded OneTab yet and there are too many windows open to figure out which ones are playing sound…so you keep trying to find it but the broken-record-like noise coming out of your computer is driving you insane…and all you can think to do is mute your computer altogether? Yup, we’ve all been there. You’ll no longer have that problem with Smart Tab Mute, which only allows one tab to play sound at any given time. Let’s say your listening to a song on SoundCloud when your friend sends you a YouTube link; as soon as you start playing the video, the SoundCloud tab will automatically mute until you pause YouTube or close the tab entirely.
