Chrome wants to remember which Websites to silence

Why a per-site option? Is it so that YouTube videos can start playing automatically.

I have media.autoplay.enabled=false in FF and that does the job just fine.

A per site option may also open up a new vector for tracking people (website checking on which popular sites you have / have not disabled autoplay).
