Thankfully, that doesn't happen too often to me, but it's a useful option when many tabs are open.

Have you ever shuffled through your tabs to figure out where that sound or music is coming from? We hear you! With today’s latest Chrome Beta release, you can now visually scan your tabs for a speaker icon to quickly find the offender. Chrome will also indicate which tabs are currently using your webcam or are being cast to your TV.Latest Chrome Beta Will Help Identify Which Tab of Many Is Playing an Annoying Ad [chrome.blogspot.com]
And for those who use Windows 8 you’ll notice that Chrome looks different in “Metro” mode. We’ve made it possible to manage multiple Chrome windows and quickly get to your favorite Chrome Apps with an integrated app launcher.

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Then again, a browser could simply give you the Preferences option of not playing sounds/movies at all unless the tab is currently selected.

WOW - I'll be looking forward to that. Lucy24 is absolutely right. However, I'll take the ability to find and kill the squawking tab.
