Chrome wants to remember which Websites to silence

I have an easier solution

Chrome's developers are testing a permanent mute for Websites that insist on running autoplay videos the instant they load.

How about a much easier solution: just disable the autoplay mis-feature. No videos. No audio. No animated gifs. No on-load javascript. Nothing. Nada. Nichts. Ничего.

I would be open to a configuration option (but not a site-initiated prompt!) to restore some or all autoplay functionalify for a specific site, but nothing more.
