    Sad to see such a useful feature being replaced with something more complex and useless!

    I think the Chrome Devs just want to p*ss around with new ideas!

    The top reasons for abandoning the experiment:

    Reason:
    Potential dataloss risk/behavioral complexity having an actionable surface so close to a tab close button.
    Solution:
    Enable hiding of close buttons, everybody knows you can close a tab with a wheel-click.

    Reason:
    Confusing interactions with mute-whole-site capabilities.
    Solution:
    Leave site muting in the Site Exceptions list only.

    Reason:
    Code complexity.
    Solution:
    Suck it up! To enable/disable a feature with a quick switch of a flag, can't be that complex!!!

    Google will restore the flag to enable this feature, this is the patch in Chromium Gerrit:
    Add feature flag for enabling tab muting

    This CL adds a feature flag that will enable tab muting. Implementation work hasn't started so this flag doesn't do anything yet.
