With a plethora of movies and TV shows on Netflix, sometimes it’s hard to decide what do you want to watch next. Yes, Netflix does provide their own ratings, but I prefer IMDB rating over this.
Earlier I was using chrome extension like NEnhancer and Netflix Rate extension, which adds IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes ratings to Netflix desktop. But, after a recent Netflix update, none of them seem to work.
Enter RateFlix, it’s a new Google Chrome extension, that adds IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes ratings next to wherever you would typically see a Netflix rating
How to add IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes rating to Netflix
Install Rateflix from Google Chrome Store.
Head over to Netflix (if it’s already opened then refresh the page) and hover over the movies and TV shows. It will show an IMDb rating next to wherever you would typically see a Netflix rating.
The IMDB rating works pretty well and clicking on an IMDb rating will open the IMDb page for that movie or TV show in a new tab.
Unfortunately, Rotten Tomatoes ratings don’t work as good as IMDB. To start with the current version of Rateflix only shows Rotten tomatoes rating for movies only, and even that doesn’t work quite well. But then so far, none of the similar chrome extension has worked accurately. And Rateflix is the only working extension on chrome store that works as advertised.
Let’s hope Netflix integrate IMDB rating in future for both desktop and the web. But looking at the present situation, it’s too much to ask.
