Chrome Extension Lets You Watch Netflix in a Small Window: The Death of Productivity

by Lambert Varias

Earlier this year we featured a project from Netflix’ Hack Day; it automatically paused the service’s video player if it detected that you fell asleep. The company recently held another Hack Day, and one of the experiments from the event could lead to humanity’s downfall. Its creators call it NetflixMini, a Chrome extension that lets you access the streaming service through a small window within the browser.

Made by Adam Butterworth, Paul Anastasopoulos and Art Burov, NetflixMini lets you resume the shows that you’ve started as well as play videos from the categories in the Netflix homepage. It doesn’t seem to have the search function built in, which is probably for the best.

I bet that document stays blank and untitled for years. Seriously though this is the least gimmicky project that I’ve seen out of Netflix’s Hack Day, and I’m sure that subscribers would love to have this feature.
