Google may have finally solved one of the biggest issues with Internet browsing: unwanted noisy tabs. According to The Verge, the latest version of Chrome includes the option to mute individual tabs.

Just right click on a specific tab to pull up the option to mute. Last year Google released a Chrome update that made it easy to figure out which tab was making noise. The company’s also working on a fix that will stop autoplay videos from ever playing at all.

The update is apparently included in version 46 of Chrome, which also killed off the browser’s “OK Google” voice search feature. You can grab the latest version of the browser now.
