For all lucky NetFlix users who see the “Watch Now” tab at NetFlix.com (indicating early access to the new Instant Watching feature) but are disappointed that the feature is IE only, Hacking NetFlix has uncovered a fix for watching NetFlix streaming movies within Firefox:
Install the IE Tab Add-on, and in the IE Tab options (Tools menu, IE Tab Options) add “http://www.netflix.com” to the sites filter.
As noted at the end of the post, all we need now is a hack for Mac support (actually, more of us still need the Instant Watching feature too). … Well, anyone?
