Yes, it uses resources. But don't worry about it unless it is causing you a problem. If so, then close those tabs completely I guess.
I tried control + click and nothing about tabs playing sound. I am running El Capitan. Is there something I am missing? Am I correct in assuming that click is right or left mouse click?
Control+click and "right click" are the same things, unless you have changed from the default mouse options.
Muting only appears in that context menu if there is sound playing in that tab. You can watch the video closely to see what I am doing there.
Hey Gary, great tip about Sound tabs!
Hi Gary. I find this feature useful, for instance, to mute the videos that seem to accompany every Macworld page these days. They are slow to load, even though I have a fast connection, and so I am usually well into reading the article and the tiny video is out of sight at the top of the page when the audio starts. My question: if I mute the audio, the video still continues and eats up resources, no?
