ENHANCE YOUR NETFLIX EXPERIENCE WITH TWO SIMPLE ADD-ONS
Text by If you’re already using Netflix for a handful of shows, this enhancement guide is for you. There’s a fair bit of good stuff that Netflix has and doesn’t offer upfront, but that can be easily fixed when you have access to these add-ons. No, we aren’t bypassing any licensing laws to get you to a show you want; we’re showing you how to get access to good shows on your current catalog.
Some of these add-ons require slight tinkering on your end, so exercise discretion and healthy web-surfing habits if you want to get them to work smoothly.
NETFLIX SUPER BROWSE
If you’re a seasoned Netflix user, you’ve most likely read or heard about how Netflix actually has secret genres or categories for their shows. As a viewer, we have our own tastes, so it’s better (for us) to know what shows are available in a specific category that caters to our liking. Netflix Super Browse is an extension for Chrome and Firefox web browsers, and it “unlocks” said hidden categories.
Installation is simple: If you’re on Chrome, simply go to the Chrome extension store and search for the add-on. Click on the “Add To Chrome” button when you find the extension. Restart your browser when done.
Go back to your Netflix, and you’ll notice that your original Browse button is now next to a brand new Super Browse option. Tucked within is a list of genres handpicked by the extension maker, covering important subsections without cluttering the option with the entire list of hidden categories.
If the extension isn’t working for you, try reinstalling it. Some ad-blockers are also not compatible with Netflix Super Browse, so switch ad-blocker extensions if you really want this add-on.
If you do not want to install any extensions, simply use a website equivalent to do the same search. One good example would be netflixcodes.me, where you can click on the genre code on the right-side column, bringing you to that Netflix genre on a new tab. The website lists all genres (with some repeats), providing the full list at a glance.
