Ok this has been annoying me for some time, and surprised I can find no mention of it anywhere except for an OSX bug: https://code.google....etail?id=179958


The issue? In Jan/Feb Chrome introduced a very welcome feature, an animation in the tab where audio was playing, if you search google you'll find dozens of news posts from Feb talking about it. Sometime in April I think the feature was removed, but perhaps it never made it to the stable branch at all which is why no-one seems to have noticed. I always use dev branch and was waiting for it to return but of course it has not. Anyone know when/if this will be added back? It is sorely missed.
