New video player proves computer viewers are still important

If you're a fan of streaming Netflix video online, you will be glad to hear that the company has launched a new web-based video player. The new player offers text overlays when you posit video and can preview the entire season the show while watching one episode of the show in full screen mode. It's worth noting that there are apparently some issues on Chrome for Mac at this point due to a limitation of Microsoft Silverlight, not a problem Netflix's part.

The new player has a better looking control bar with access to subtitles, season previews, and text menus are replaced with bigger icons. You can preview additional episodes of the show from within the player even when watching video in full-screen mode. The resizing of windows on a computer is also smoother now. It sounds like an all-around better experience with the new player.
