Let me mute Chrome!

Ok, so I'm sure we all hate it when we open a new tab or window and it starts playing some stupid ad, music, or whatever. Well, how do I mute it? I don't care if the video plays, it's not effecting performance, but I don't want to hear the sound.

The only solution I found was Chrome Toolbox which has a lot of other useless functions I don't need or want and also requires access to all data on your computer and all websites you visit, which I'm definitely not going to do.

From my reading I found that Vista/7 has the capability to mute specific applications, why not OSX? And why not Chrome itself?
Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

I don't think it's possible at this point as it has been a suggestion to Google for a while now. See this thread on the Google support forum:

Add option to disable sound from a window or tab

You could use AudioHijack to mute the whole Chrome application.
Need DropBox? Let's both get some free space:
