Netflix new search results layout

I don't know how long it's been there, because I haven't been searching for new titles to add to my queue (479 already), but there's a new layout to Netflix's search results. If you look for a term like silent, it returns the results on tabs. There is a tab each for Popular Matches, Movie Matches, People Matches, and Genre Matches. They make it easy and fast to switch between lists, especially where there are enough results to fill a page, because you don't have to scroll down as much.


  1. They definately seem to be going for speed with this change. They don't include the image from the box either. Was that there before?

  2. Did they also change and make more prominent the movie trailer functionality?

  3. No, the cover art was not in the search results before.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think they repositioned the links for the trailers. I don't recall seeing them in that spot (between the cover art and contents description) before.
