It appears that Netflix is testing a new user interface for the web because some users are reporting seeing the new interface. Screenshots of the new interface have appeared online and from the looks of things it’s going to make it much easier to use the online streaming service as this Netflix redesign dumps the spinning carousel.

Currently all web users get an auto-spinning carousel that can be irritatingly slow at times, it’s not easy to select specific episodes which can be a nuisance for many users.

This new interface takes care of all that by doing away with the carousel. Instead it lets users expand movies and shows if they want to see more details about that particular title and users can also cycle through stills taken from running times.

Since users with the new interface have to click to cycle through the selections, they find that this makes browsing the huge content library faster and reduces the chances of accidental misclicks.

This Netflix redesign feels quite similar to the tablet app’s user interface, though it’s certainly more sleeker. The new user interface has only been rolled out to a select few users and Netflix hasn’t confirmed if and when this will be rolled out for all of its users.
