Netflix launches new website design


officially launched the new design of its


website, and the new layout makes the browsing experience much more enjoyable.

For starters, Netflix is ​​getting rid of its carousel navigation, ditching slow side-scrolling in favor of a click-based navigation system that speeds up the experience and makes it far less frustrating to explore. Instead of watching the titles scroll, clicking the arrow will refresh the entire row.

If you’ve forgotten what this carousel-style navigation looks like, here’s a refresher.

With the old design, clicking on a Netflix title caused the episode to load immediately while it displayed summary information. And, if you wanted to explore the title further or select a specific episode, you had to hover your mouse over the title without clicking – which was usually random.

With the new design, clicking on a title won’t immediately trigger your movie or TV show to play — instead, you’ll have the option to read information about the show.

If you click the arrow, the title will now expand so you can explore other episodes in the series, read a plot preview, view related titles, and view cast information.

While Netflix started rolling out the new interface to a small number of subscribers over the past few months, the new interface is now available to more users – but Netflix says everyone should see the new design in the next two weeks.
