Hugh Pickens DOT Com writes "Imagine this. You're sitting in the library using your laptop while your favorite professor—the one whose admiration you most desire—is leading a small, silent reading group in a corner of the room. Suddenly from your computer comes a blaring, a whining, a siren, a yowl. You have opened a YouTube page in the background, and now, in some hidden tab, it plays, brays, blats, and bellows an ungodly cacophony across the solemn stacks. Your blood pressure spikes, your face turns red, and your fingers become clumsy as you scramble to find and kill the tab that betrayed you. Where is it? What is it? Where is that ungodly sound coming from? Now Robinson Meyer writes in the Atlantic that Google has found a solution. The next version of the company’s browser, Google Chrome, will tell you which tab is the source of the din. If a tab plays music or a video, a small icon of a speaker will appear in the tab itself. So instead of hunting through tabs, with click after agonized click, when a tab contains an element that is making noise, the browser will pop up an indicator showing where that noise is coming from. Thank you Google."
