Michael Spiegelman, Netflix's director of product innovation for the Website and Tablet, announced on the company blog that they updated the web player for Windows and the Mac.
- The size of the controls now scales, making it easier to use the player on large screens, for example if you connect your computer to your TV
- Similarly, the player will scale down to smaller windows, which is useful if you want to watch something while working in another window. Also, the video now stretches to the full window in the browser
- Full screen mode now has all the features of browser mode so you can view season/episode information and change to the next episode when watching a TV show
- Pausing the video now shows more information about the title
Spiegelman also posted an image to explain the new icons (see large size).
What do you think of the changes?
