A trend against Tabbed Browsing?

Postby fkapnist » Sat Jun 04, 2016 5:46 pm

I noticed that Reuters, Time, USA Today, etc. now force "auto-play" videos when a new page is loaded. That defeats the purpose of tabbed browsing. The webmasters apparently don't want users to load more than one of their site pages in tabs, because that will create a lot of noise and needless memory leaks. Webmasters should let the users decide to play or not.

Auto-play ads are particularly annoying - especially if they have sound! FireFox has a config setting that lets you turn off video auto-play. I'm not sure if other browsers have a similar option.

Everyone was complaining about Flash and that HTML5 videos were better. But nobody was really using HTML5. Now that we see it on so many sites, it is evident that HTML5 videos will be just as troublesome. I cannot find a setting that turns off auto-play, and if you load 2 or 3 pages in tabs they will rattle away making a lot of noise. Of course this auto-play idea is for the ads which always play first.
