  • Wider Default Audio Player in Chrome?

    December 11th, 2022
    My kids like to listen to story tapes. Most of them their great grandmother recorded onto cassettes in the 1980s, their grandmother digitized in the 2000s, and I reworked for the web in the 2020s. We usually use either a tablet or old phone to play them back, and while the browser mostly works fine for this it's terrible for seeking:

    The bar is so short that it's very hard to seek accurately, especially when a story is three hours long.
