One of the more annoying aspects of watching Netflix on your laptop or desktop computer is the trailers the service likes to automatically play on your behalf. Thankfully, there’s a neat extension for Chrome and Firefox that fixes this issue – and a bunch more besides.

Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against interesting trailers for movies or TV shows I might care about. And everyone suffers through trailers they’re not interested in at the movies — it’s just the name of the game.

What I don’t like is when trailers autoplay, especially when I’ve just cranked my system’s volume in anticipation of blasting my favourite show. I like knowing the wall of sound is coming when I click a play button; not getting hit with it, and a distracting video, whenever I load up Netflix’s main page.

And that’s not all. As an added bonus, the extension also slaps your “Continue Watching” and “My List” feeds in the number one and two positions below the service’s featured content at the top. You won’t have to scroll past any Netflix promotions to pull up the shows you were, or want to be, watching.
