    Please read on...

    This may or may not be important to some/any of you but I'd really appreciate if you could sign the petition as it's quite important to me and at least a couple of others out there [judging by my Google searches], and I thought who better to have my back than my MR brethren, fight the power! :p

    Please take a few moments to sign:

    Thanks in advance ;)

    If it's that important to you, open up Applescript, and paste the following code:

    Code:
    tell application "iTunes"
    	if mute is false then
    		set mute to true
    	else
    		set mute to false
    	end if
    end tell

    Save it as a run-only application and put it in your dock. Viola - instant mute (and un-mute) button for iTunes. No online petition (you do know those don't work, right?), no fuss, just muted music. Without adjusting the system volume.

    Wish I hadn't bothered.

    I've already left feedback.

    Seriously how is mute better than pause, unless you like missing the rest of a song?

    I can't remember how mute used to work so I'm not sure what you're missing out on, but doesn't shift + apple + down mute iTunes?
