|I know there are plugins than can somewhat do this, but no solutions are universal or great.|
Please update all of our browsers so that no automatic video/audio can play without user interaction/permission.
Its getting to be impossible to visit many sites today without being bombarded by video and sound playing by default on the web. In the worst cases such as on mobile browsers like iOS Safari, visiting a site will start playing media that kills whatever you're already listening to in another app.
This is eating up our data and inconveniencing millions of people using your products.
Please help us enable a better web.
