Chrome/Chromium is sound-greedy

I was having an issue where chromium (and chrome) would… grab onto my sound device? Basically it would not play sound if another application (eg firefox) was. When chromium was able to play sound, then these other applications could not.

Installing the pulseaudio-alsa package on Archlinux fixed this. It did require a restart.
