Safari will let you pin and find noisy tabs just like in Chrome

New, 24 comments

Onstage at WWDC today, Apple's Craig Federighi introduced a few new and useful features to Safari in OS X El Capitan that Chrome users will immediately identify. With the next update, users will be able to pin tabs for easy browsing and find noisy tabs that you're dying to mute.

Both new features work as you might expect, with pinned tabs creating new tabs after you've clicked a link and noisy tabs showing a speaker icon to let you know which tab is being so loud. The new update is a long-time coming to the browser, since Chrome has added said features in years past. All that said, they're welcome additions, especially since Chrome has become such a data hog recently.
