Google Chrome to block video ads

Google has developed a tool that lets you permanently mute Web sites that automatically play videos with sound.

It’s an extremely irritating problem, and the new option will be welcomed by the majority of internet users.

Videos – often ads – that play with sound can be distracting, especially if you’re trying to watch or listen to something at the time.

To turn one off, you usually need to stop what you’re doing, figure out which background tab it’s playing from and then scroll down the page to actually find it.

Google is only experimenting with the feature right now, according to Chromium evangelist François Beaufort, so it’s not currently available to Chrome users.

“This will give you more control about which website is allowed to throw sound at you automatically,” he said in a Google+ post.

You can, however, try it out in Chrome Canary, an experimental and unstable version of the browser.

There are lots of “see how it’s made” videos on the Internet and not all of them are interesting, but this roughly nine-minute clip of how to make printing ink is one of the best.

The video documents the process undergone at The Printing Ink Company where they make pigments for mostly-offset printing workflows. They mostly deal in cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK as you probably know them), but they also mix a bunch of custom colours in the Pantone system as well.

Like most of these videos, the ink-making process is a rather intense combination of artistry and industry. The batches are rather huge, the tolerances are low, and the machinery is extremely expensive. But, there are human hands on almost every aspect of the process. It is very inspiring.

Even if you’re not big into printing, just seeing them chop pieces of early-process ink off of the massive globs is pretty satisfying.
