Google Chrome's New 'Mute Site' Option Is The Tech Advancement We've All Been Waiting For

Most scientists agree that the worst thing in the world is when a website autoplays videos, especially advertisements, when you just want to read an article in peace! Fortunately, the January Google Chrome update added a new feature that can permanently solve this annoying problem: mute site.

This (paradigm-shifting) advancement also go people excited about potential next-steps!

In the tech race, it seems about time the common man and woman got something they needed. Let's celebrate this small victory by basking in the silence!
