If you’re a Mac user, chances are you’ve had your share of frustration when it comes to audio on websites. Whether it’s an advertisement that starts playing automatically or a video that won’t turn off, audio can be distracting and annoying. Fortunately, Apple has made muting sites on your Mac easy.

You can mute sites from the Safari app by clicking and holding the Audio button in the Smart Search field. From here, you’ll see a list of websites that are playing audio and you can select one to go to the tab where the audio is playing. If you’re viewing a website that’s not playing any audio, there’s also an option to mute all tabs at once.

If you’re using another browser like Chrome or Firefox, there are also keyboard shortcuts for muting tabs. The default setup for Chrome allows you to mute/unmute the current tab with Alt+Shift+M and mute all tabs except the current one with Alt+Shift+N. You can customize these keybindings through the “Keyboard Shortcut” menu at the bottom right in Chrome’s extension settings.

Finally, if there’s just one tab or website causing trouble, firefox users can simply right-click on that tab in the tab bar and select “Mute Site”. This will immediately silence any sound coming from that particular tab or website so you can get back to browsing witout interruption.

We hope this guide has helped you figure out how to mute sites on your Mac so you can get back to enjoying your browsing experience.
