With the release of the El Capitan operating system Apple Safari, among other things, has finally learned to turn off tabbed music. A small guide to working with the new icon “Turn off the sound“- below.
How to turn off or turn on sounds on all tabs at the same time
Imagine the situation – commercials and songs with might and main play in several tabs at once. Silence everything at once is easy: just click on the speaker icon in the address bar. Please note – you must be in the tab on which the music does NOT play.

Mute or unmute all other tabs except this one
If you have many tabs with active audio playback open and you need to leave only one, right-click on the speaker icon and select the option Mute the rest of the tabs.
As you can see, the ability to block sound in Safari has appeared much more than it might seem at first glance. All the better – in the fight against annoying advertisers, everything will come in handy.
