Now that your shows are prop­erly cat­e­go­rized for eas­ier ex­plo­ration, you'll prob­a­bly want to know which ones are worth your time. Wouldn't it be nice to have a lit­tle some­thing within the Netflix page that can dis­play rat­ings from var­i­ous film re­view web­sites?

NEnhancer is a Chrome ex­ten­sion that lets you tweak your Netflix page to in­clude rat­ings from re­view ag­gre­ga­tion sites IMDB and Rot­ten Toma­toes.

Like all ex­ten­sions, down­load and in­stall on the Chrome ex­ten­sion page like be­fore. Go to your Netflix main page, and you'll see a NEnhancer logo in­side your browser's ad­dress bar. Click on it and click Op­tions, and you'll be shown the same list of set­tings found in the ex­ten­sion man­age­ment tab for Chrome. By de­fault, some fea­tures are al­ready en­abled, but we want to full pack­age here. So go ahead and check both 'IMDB Panel' and 'RT Panel'. This will bring up a prompt in red, ask­ing you en­able an ex­per­i­men­tal Chrome fea­ture.

Fol­low those in­struc­tions to en­able the ex­per­i­men­tal fea­ture, and close your en­tire browser prop­erly. Now you can re-open Chrome browser, go back to the Netflix web­site, and start hov­er­ing your mouse over some ti­tles.

The star rat­ing you now get is ac­tu­ally from film data­base site IMDB. The tomato and the pop­corn icons are from Rot­ten Toma­toes. If you've con­fig­ured your NEnhancer ex­ten­sion with the in­struc­tions above, you'd also have the abil­ity to launch a tiny pop-up. This shows you more in­for­ma­tion from the re­spec­tive rat­ings site, mak­ing it a great way to ex­plore the re­views writ­ten for the show.

You can also ac­cess the trailer by click­ing the icon next to the star, mak­ing it su­per handy and quick for you to de­cide whether the show is worth watch­ing (based on the trailer and the rec­om­men­da­tion).

With both en­hance­ments, you now have all the nec­es­sary tools for a bet­ter Netflix ex­pe­ri­ence with­out leav­ing the Netflix site it­self.

When you’re done, you should have all the rat­ings at your fin­ger­tips.

Pulling up show rat­ings from film critic sites is much eas­ier with add-ons.
