STOP Facebook videos from playing automatically

One of my rules of good web design is that nothing should happen on the page unless I ask it to happen.

This is a BIG improvement to my experience on Facebook.

A simple extension called Disable HTML5 Autoplay for Chrome and Opera — and coming soon to Firefox — stops those videos from playing automatically. They will still appear in your Facebook News Feed, but they won’t start unless you click on them.
