    "Ever since Internet Explorer is my main browser I meant default browser. So there that means I use it as a browser for Netflix too eh? What I like about it is that I can stream Netflix in HD using this browser. And since i usually watch on my desktop computer which has a big screen i really need an HD streaming. And Internet Explorer can do that job unlike other browsers which i wont be naming."

    "Firefox might be one of the most popular web browsers out there but it doesn't really mean that it is one of the best browsers for Netflix. Sure you can watch Netflix here until 720p resolution only but if you want an 1080p that is impossible. But i dont really care about that as long as what i am watching is not blurred i am totally fine so yeah"

    "I have always been a Mac user so that means my main browser would be Safari. With the Safari browser you can stream Netflix up to 1080p. Of course you need a good internet connection to be able to watch a full HD movie or series on Netflix though because we all know that Netflix lowers the quality of its video when you have a slow net"

    "Unfortunately i read somewhere that you cannot stream Netflix using the Google Chrome browser. But then you can stream it at 720p resolution, which i think is already HD for me. So that isn't really a problem to me. I'll still use Chrome to stream Netflix thou"
