Google’s new Chrome internet browser will now enable users to permanently mute any websites, which autoplays unnecessary videos. After scores of complaints received over the past few months, the search engine giant has finally launched this Chrome version.
The Independent reported, “Available on Windows, Mac and Linux, the new version — Chrome 64 lets you permanently mute websites that autoplay videos.”
To meet the same, people need to click the “View Site Information” symbol on the left-hand edge of the “omnibar” or the address bar combined with the Google search box, to mute a site that automatically plays videos. This, however, replaces the previous “mute tab” feature that was only temporary.
The new chrome version is also speculated to protect the Windows and Mac devices against the “Meltdown” and “Spectre” chipset susceptibilities. Google has also added an all-new High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging support to Chrome 64 browser for Windows users. All it requires a a PC with the Fall Creators Update, a HDR-compatible monitor and graphics card.
