Google is adding a helpful play button to the toolbar in Chrome

Google appears to be on a mission to improve the online media playback experience: not long after adding support for keyboard controls, it’s now experimenting with a play button that appears on Chrome’s toolbar.

As spotted by ZDNet, the idea is you can quickly stop and restart audio and video files playing in a tab, without having to hunt through the page itself. The feature is now live in the early Canary edition of the browser.
