Turn your volume off
Dumb suggestion.
1) I want system sounds, I want audio when I play games, I want sound when I listen to MP3s or internet radio. I NEVER want sounds embedded in webpages. Leaving the browser plugins in place and turning off my speakers would be beyond retarded.
2) I would still be forced to download the audio files that I don't want, and at 56k, every little Kb counts.
Deleting the plugins from my browser's plugins folder only takes less than a minute (navigating to the folder takes the longest :-\ ), and only has to be done once.

Turning your monitor off also relieves a lot of stress

Seriously, saying to turn off your speakers because you don't want sounds in webpages is like saying to rip the wiring out of your house because a lamp is shining in your eyes.

I was looking at it like this:
I show up on a page with stupid sounds, and I don't want to hear them, so I simply turn off the power button on the speaker while I'm there, and turn it back on when I go away.

I look at it as: Why bother hitting the mute button every single time you come across an obnoxious page with audio on it, when you can spend less than one minute providing a permanent solution to the problem.
I simply RAR'd the plugins and left the RAR file in the plugins folder. This way I can easily put them back if I ever become deranged enough to want them.
