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.
