Why is the autoplay option removed from the addressbar?

There used to be a ‘button’ in the addressbar which was super convenient. Why has this been removed?


This issue is very important for usability. The removal of the temporary permissions option effectively means I cannot update brave-browser to the latest version, as allowing temporary permissions is essential to efficient browsing. A feature as important as that being removed suggests an error was made in development while making another change (?)



How it appeared in Version 1.56.20 Chromium: 115.0.5790.171 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Note autoplay icon at right side of address bar:



Several updates have occurred in the meantime and this problem was not fixed (or even addressed in a comment(?)), despite issues with autoplay having been reported.
