    A feature all browsers need - Where is the music coming from?

    Seriously, why don' they have this? If you are like me you have 108401384013 tabs and windows open at a time. There is always that one $#@!ing random tab with something playing music or an ad. I want a button that identifies said tab instantly or any tabs where music is coming from.

    Why doesn't this exist?

    Macs use F3 to show all open windows.

    Open windows isn't the issue, I can do that as well, the problem is the 1 window out of all of them open that is feeding music.

    Won't necessarily be flash. I just want a button that identifies what window has audio.

    It can be midi in html or mp3 for example.

    True that is what I do but say I want to watch a youtube video and some random window has some ad playing music... well it drives me nuts.

    This is a must have feature. It's simple, press a button tabs with music are shown. It's common sense.

    I agree it would be a great feature. But in the meantime you should just have one or 2 tabs open Click here to enlarge LOL

    I downloaded Auidiohijack for free so I can mute anything on FF while I use another browser.

    A guy from FF explained why this wasn't possible before on reddit.com.

    btw this only bothers me when I search for one thing and one thing only.

    This would be hard to do... In some browsers, each tab is associated with a different process (as opposed to the parent's process e.g. Safari). To make things harder, I am assuming that some audio is interprocess, some is not - meaning some can be handled by the browser, others might need a plugin (flash). I am sure you could easily interrogate every single process to determine which is playing audio - but my point is, it is much trickier than it sounds - and wouldn't know when it was safe to kill a process. Tricky to do it perfectly right for every browser is what I am getting at - which is probably the reason this hasn't been done right.

    It looks like someone partially solved your problem though: http://techcrunch.com/2011/08/01/its-about-time/

    Cheers.

    You know what? After thinking about this more - and reading how they did it (Above link) - this wouldn't be too bad. You could simply read the HTML in each open browser/tab/etc. - if there is embedded audio, mark it as possible. Color these tabs a different color, and that would at least identify what could be doing it.

    Would that work as a solution?

    That's definitely a start.
