MuteTab for Chrome
Take control of noisy tabs

MuteTab is a free Chrome extension which offers various ways to control noisy tabs.

Clicking the MuteTab button lists all the tabs which are playing sounds now, or have done so recently, and you can mute any of these with a click.

Another click adds sites to a blacklist, ensuring you'll never hear their audio in future. There's also a whitelist for sites you don't want to be muted.

If you're in a hurry, a "Mute all tabs" turns off Chrome audio immediately, or clicking "Mute all background tabs" disables sound on everything but music sites (you can choose what these are).

The Options dialog provides even more control. You could set up Chrome to mute sounds by default, for instance, only playing them on approved sites. Defaulting to "Background muted" means you'll only hear audio from the current or approved tabs, and there are various other settings to explore.

Verdict:

Chrome is getting better at managing annoying audio, but MuteTab's whitelist and blacklist features are valuable extras which more than justify the download.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.41

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.41

• You can now see recent status updates in the WhatsApp widget in your iPhone's Today View.
• Voice messages will now continue to play if you switch to another app or turn your screen off.
