This Chrome extension brings IMDB and Rotten Tomato ratings to Netflix

Sites like Rotten Tomatoes, however, do an excellent job of highlighting what’s great, while bluntly telling you when something should have never been made.

It seems obvious that the two services should work together — at least, that appears to be the frame of thought behind Netflix Rate: a Chrome extension which adds IMDB and Rotten Tomato ratings to Netflix by overwriting the site’s CSS styles.

The extension itself is quite simple, but if you rely on Netflix for streaming videos, it comes in handy when you’re browsing for something new to watch. How it works:
