Netflix rolls out new instant search tool for the Web, displaying results and cover art as you type

Netflix has introduced a new instant search tool on the Web, as it looks to expedite your search for TV shows and movies.

Now, as soon as you start typing the first letter or two from the name of a show or actor, Netflix automatically shows relevant matches alongside their associated cover art in a grid-like format.

Down the left-hand colum, a list of the associated cast and crew are displayed which, when clicked, takes you to all the content each person has been involved with (that’s available on Netflix).

Interestingly, you can also now just type in ‘Netflix’, and all Netflix originals are surfaced immediately.
