New Chrome Beta Mutes Autoplay Videos


One of my biggest pet peeves is autoplay videos and ads on different sites. The real problem is when I'm trying to record a podcast and things start playing wide-open. I've had to take different measures, but the latest beta version of Chrome will mute autoplay vides. I love it and am willing to switch back to Chrome for this reason alone.

Other bonuses in Chrome 64, as noted by 9to5Google, include an improved pop-up blocker, additional security measures that prevent malicious auto-redirects, and support for HDR video playback when Windows 10 is in HDR mode. On Chrome OS, there is also a new “split view” feature that allows for easier multitasking with multiple windows.
