Changes are underway for Netflix, which is raising its subscription prices for the fourth time in 12 years.

Even as Netflix has become the common go-to for at-home entertainment, navigating the streaming service hasn't become much easier if you don't have a specific show or movie in mind.

A new widget could make finding something to watch on Netflix much easier, helping viewers narrow down options to hidden genre subcategories.

A Google Chrome extension called Better Browse is a free plugin that rearranges the Netflix homepage, adding a new "Browse All" option to the menu at the top of browser's window.

Observe below:

A Google Chrome extension adds a “Browse All” drop-down menu to reveal a ton of film and tv subcategories.


Click the red "Browse All" menu, and scan the drop down. You'll see Netflix offerings broken down into many different categories – "Adult Animation," "B-Horror," "Christmas Movies," and "Mockumentaries" are just a few from the alphabetical list.

Hopefully this new Netflix hack will guide you toward a peaceful binge-watching weekend.
