Netflix’s web interface is a ghastly abomination, an affront to the service itself – which we all know is truly delightful in most every way. Netflix’s web interface has been terrible for years.
Hopefully, that’s about to change. Netflix is prepping a brand new redesign and is currently testing it with a small subset of users. Netflix says it will roll out to everyone in June.
