Browsing Netflix on the web just got so much easier. A San Francisco developer created Netflix God Mode, a bookmarklet that adjusts the arrangement of your Netflix queue so you can see all the titles in a give category at once.

To install the boomarklet, head over to the website, and drag the green bookmarklet button onto your browser’s bookmarks bar (it works with Chrome, Firefox and Safari).

It’s a simple adjustment but one that makes looking for your next movie or show so much easier and faster (are you listening, Netflix?)

The bookmarklet was created by San Francisco-based developer Renan Cakirerk, who says he came up with the idea during a Netflix break when he was working late one night.

“I opened Netflix and found myself waiting for the scrolling movies forever (again!) so I opened my Chrome Developer Tools and started playing with the CSS to get rid of the sliders,” he tells Mashable in an email. This led to a workaround, but, he says, “I needed a way to automize this so I wrote this tiny script and thought it would be cool to share it with the fellow Netflix horizontal scroll sufferers.”

He also put the code for the bookmarklet up on GitHub, in case you want to tinker around with it yourself. Unfortunately, there’s not yet a way to achieve this effect outside of the browser, so if you watch through the Netflix app, you’re still stuck with those sliders for now.
