Google Chrome could soon let you mute annoyingly noisy websites

Websites that auto-load videos with sound may soon be a thing of the past — or, at least, your days of having to put up with them could be. That’s because Google is testing a new option that lets users permanently mute a website within the Chrome Browser.   Noisy websites have long been a pain.

Google launches Adblocker in Chrome Dev and Canary for Android

Google announced some time ago that it had plans to integrate an adblocker into the Chrome web browser. Google, being an advertising company first and foremost, at least when it comes to revenue generation, faces troubling times ahead caused largely by the increasing popularity of content blockers.
