Chrome Auto Mute
In addition, the Popup protection recognizes from version 64 as playback or close buttons disguised links, which open new windows to display advertising or similar things. Google refers to these elements as “abusive practices” and has been working for some time to put a stop to new mechanisms here.

On Windows 10, Chrome 64 or later can play HDR videos as long as the operating system itself is in HDR mode. Under Youtube, the corresponding quality modes are shown on HDR videos. For example, if you want to test the new HDR feature with Google Chrome, you can do so with this demo video in 4K. Auto-Mute and enhanced pop-up protection are also available in Chrome 64 for Android, Linux, and Mac, along with Windows, and will be in the stable release in a few weeks.
