Default Following Chrome's Lead, Microsoft Edge Also Moves to Block Autoplay Videos

This report is from Bleeping Computer:

Following Chrome's Lead, Microsoft Edge Also Moves to Block Autoplay Videos
Quote:
The Microsoft Edge browser will gain the ability to block auto-playing media, such as sounds and web videos. The feature was announced today for Edge browsers part of Insiders program, Microsoft's testing ground for new Windows 10 features.

The ability to block auto-playing media will land in the mainstream Edge distribution this fall when Microsoft launches the next major version of the Windows 10 operating system.

The feature is not enabled by default, in its current form. Microsoft engineers have added a new setting in Microsoft Edge to allow users to control whether sites can autoplay media.
