Browsing the Internet is not the same as it used to be. In our current times, content and media is presented in so many forms, such as text, video, and audio. This can sometimes be disturbing if you are in a situation that requires you to be paying attention.
Imagine you’re surfing the Internet in class and all of a sudden a video starts playing? Your professor will immediately know that you’re not actually taking notes.
Never fear though! There is a simple solution to this aggravating audio and video problem we have all faced before. First, you should silence the browser you are using. You can do this by opening up settings, clicking advance settings, content settings, and then notifications. Here you can pick and choose sites that are allowed to send audio alert, start playing a video, etc.
If you’re having trouble with that, there’s a simple “in the moment” you can always count on. It is to open your browser in incognito mode. This will prevent pop ups, and other sites that can potentially have volume. Only catch is that incognito requires you to log into all your accounts again.
