In a previous Netflix hacks post, we told you about the streaming service’s secret categories. These are Netflix’s specific — sometimes oddly specific —pages that group together all the movies and shows falling under a category or genre.
Previously, you had to use secret codes to access these pages, or you could get to them by going into that show or movie’s detail page and selecting the category you crave. For instance, from the “Stranger Things” page, you can get to categories such as “Teen TV Shows” or “Scary.”

Now, it’s getting even easier.
Thanks to a Chrome extension called Netflix Categories (what else?), you can access a list of Netflix’s subcategories in your browser. Just install the extension, click on it and scroll to whatever category you’re feeling. You can even bookmark the categories you like the most.
Want “Movies for ages 8 to 10”? It’s got that. Want “Satanic Stories”? That’s a little weird, but it’s got that, too.
Since Netflix also now makes it easier to delete your recent activity, if you’re not proud of the categories you stumble upon, we’d suggest doing that, too. Looking at you, “Satanic Stories” people.
