Probably related to my annoyance with Edge's jealousy in Windows 10 is my annoyance with videos that start playing in my browser on page load. SERIOUSLY annoying.

If you feel the same, check out this article from PC World.

If you're a Chrome, Firefox, or Opera user, this post will step you through how to rid yourself of the annoyance.

If you're a Microsoft or Safari user, this article, dated September, 2016, won't do you a whole lot of good.

Hopefully these vendors have since developed another way to get you where you want to be. If I can find solutions for Microsoft and Apple browsers, I will update this post.
