Application Specific Volume Control

Often I will be on the inernet playing a game or on a site with music, but I want to listen to my own music. Is there any application out there that enables you to control volume for specific applications such as safari but not turn off the volume in itunes? or is there a way that I could do this aplready with os x or safari?

For anyone else who's wondering, this question was answered on Macworld:

JoeSoft’s $50 Hear, in addition to enhancing your Mac’s audio in a wide variety of ways (equalizer and 3D effects included), provides a mixer component that allows you to separately adjust the volume of all the applications running on your Mac. In my book, $50 is a lot to pay for just this single feature, but I also like its other features which helps me live with the price tag.

$50? No thank you. I'll continue to use the volume slider instead.
