You tube has added new Play icon next to its red favicon which is visible only as soon as video starts playing. It will be incredibly useful if you have multiple videos open in different tabs and want to know which one is making sound or currently playing.
This play icon disappears as soon as you hit pause button. However, it will display even if you have enabled flashblock and video has not yet started playing. Google is slowly rolling out this new feature. If you have yet not experienced it, wait for some more time. Also, this is not a Chrome specific feature and available for Firefox as well as IE.
This feature is expected to benefit users by reminding them which tab is playing. But I guess, the YTO extension does this job better than the newly introduced one.
