Silent Site Sound Blocker - Episode 120

Sunday Sep 25, 2016 (00:14:56)

Description

This week, Avram Piltch discusses one of his personal projects - the Chrome extension Silent Site Sound Blocker. This extension solves a common problem online: unsolicited noise. If you spend a lot of time on news sites, you will recognize the issue of ad videos playing automatically and making noise when you don't want them to. This extension allows you to prevent sites from making noise without your permission. Best of all? It's completely free.
