Detect Which Browser Window/Tab Plays Music In The Background

So you have a web browser open with dozens of tabs when suddenly you hear an annoying sound and have no idea which of the sites does that.

Don’t worry. MuteTab, a Google Chrome extension, is here to rescue. Not only it detects sound from tabs but also allows you to mute background tabs altogether.

Unfortunately, it’s not yet available in other web browsers. However, if you are a Google Chrome user, give it a try.

    Hate to say it but Maxthon has had this feature built-in for years.

      Nope, I think you can only mute not identify.
