Netflix Enhancer means you can multitask and binge watch at the same time
View trailers, IMDb info, and Rotten Tomatoes ratings without leaving Netflix.
For those of us who want to binge-watch Orange Is the New Black on our laptops while trolling the Internet, Netflix Enhancer is the Chrome extension we’ve been waiting for. The useful new tool adds much-needed features to the browser-based Netflix streaming experience—most importantly, a way to view your content while jumping between multiple windows.
The Netflix Enhancer extension available for Chrome adds a pop-out player, which anchors the screen of what you’re streaming to the bottom right corner of your monitor while you browse between other windows. You can resize the player as you wish to leave as much space as you want for other Web browsing.
The enhancer also delivers other practical add-ons like an option to view the trailer of the film you’re interested in before you watch, as well as Rotten Tomatoes ratings and IMDb information. It also lets you hide any of the rows on your Netflix front page and gives a “random episode” option when you arrive at a TV series landing page so you can try the series out without having to start with a pilot, which is great for watching reality TV series without having to feel completist about watching it in order.
The extension is available in the Chrome Web Store now.
