A volume booster is a browser extension to control and boost the volume of audio playing per tab.  

When you open a site with audio, you get, at the most, two options to control the volume. The operating system provides one option, and it is always available. It changes the volume of the entire web browser, however.

The second option is provided by the browser or the site the audio is playing. You may get individual sound controls or use the browser's muting functionality to mute audio playback.

Volume booster adds sound control options to the browser. One of its main features is that it can change the sound of each tab individually. 

If you happen to play a too-loud or barely audible video or audio clip in the browser in a tab, you may use it to either reduce the volume of that tab or boost the sound by up to 600%, all without changing the default volume of the web browser or impacting the sound in any other browser tab.

All you need to do is click on the extension icon in the tab that is playing audio. The extension displays a volume slider that you may use to change the volume. The icon of the extension indicates the volume level at any time so that you see it at first glance.

Boosting works similarly to reducing the volume, only that you don't stop at 100% but can jack the volume up to 600%. The change takes effect immediately so that you may adjust the volume as you see fit.

Another helpful feature is listing all tabs with audio playback in the interface. A click on a listing switches to the tab immediately so that you may control the audio or other functionality on that tab.

    Risk impact

    VolumeUp - Sound booster requires a lot of risky permissions and is not safe to use. Avoid installing this extension unless you absolutely trust this publisher.

    Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

    Risk likelihood

    VolumeUp - Sound booster has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

    Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
