The changes, brought along with the Proton redesign, have made it less obvious to mute or unmute a playing tab, something you want to do quickly and without confusion.
Before, a simple but effective speaker icon was visible and could be accessed at all times. Now, the icon (dis)appears on hovering. The small capital text hasn't helped me once (too small to read, wants to convey too much information).
So I'd like to suggest using (larger) icons with a larger click area again, for _relevant_ volume/autoplay/PiP tab controls, and abandon too much text for more clarity.
Thanks for all the replies.
Thanks for the replies. Mte90, I like your idea... audio should follow the focus.
A speaker symbol in the menubar. Like the cut or copy button. The activated tab is muted if a user press the speaker symbol. Maybe mouse wheel volume up/down over the symbol.
Here with an exciting update…

I'd like to see the option of keeping certain tabs muted, every time I go to that site or it opens from an email link. I'm tired of certain websites blasting me out of my office chair when their page opens.
very good idea to avoid to wake up family when you are browsing during the night
