You’re watching your favourite show on Netflix and just as the next episode starts you get this:

This is fine for the casual Netflix user, but if you binge-watch shows like I do, it pops up every three to four episodes. Which is annoying as all hell.

But this deeply first-world problem has a solution. Flix Assist is a Chrome extension that automatically clicks the Continue Watching button without you having to lift a finger.

As the comments from users have suggested, this solution couldn’t have come soon enough.

What’s even more delightful is it removes the countdown to the next episode so you no longer have to wait 30 seconds.

Because life is unbearable when you have to wait half a minute between shows.
