My concern isn't with a feature that mutes all sound, but with a feature
whereby the browser recalls the muted state of specific videos or audio on
specific pages. For example, I want media by default to not be muted (so that i
can just go to someone's blog and watch their video of a cat jumping off a tree
without having to worry about turning on audio), but I want audio on the pages
of specific games that I visit often to be muted by default. I also definitely
don't want to go to a site with six simultaneous videos and have to unmute each
individually when the page provides a single unmute control that controls all
six.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding how you want the browser to handle user preferences
for muting though. Could you elaborate?
