In contrast, Netflix uses their own proprietary software which they have built from the ground up, which is why the Netflix site is so much faster and easier to use.

  1. The Netflix search engine is great. I have not used it much, but have always found what I'm looking for.

    Even the website is a class act with its pop up windows that describe a movie, creating and managing a cueue and the ability to rate genres and movies for more personalized recommendations.
