The accepted solution to my previous question, Always mute all sound from all tabs in an Android browser (Preferably FireFox) no longer works.

I will, of course, contact the author of App Volume Control which I purchased and which has been working perfectly until a recent factory refresh & reinstall.

In the meantime, I have never, and will never, under any circumstances listened to audio or watched a video in a browser on my Android 'phone.

And I am mightily pissed off by auto-play videos on otherwise reputable news sites, which generally auto-play at highly inconvenient moments.

Is there a gratis Android browser which never plays audio, or which offers a mute option which works 100% ?

Beyond that, it would be nice to have a browser which strips ads and videos and never even displays them.

The more secure/tracker proof, the better.

    To filter ads I use brave but I don't think anything works always in blocking both ads and autoplay because the bad marketing guys will always find new ways to trigger unwanted events on our clients. It's an ongoing battle..

  • I would be happy just to stop "reputable" news sites auto-playing video or be able to mute the entire browser; everything else would just be a bonus Dec 2 '19 at 7:35
