"Plug-in developers are increasingly neglecting Safari - wrongly! Which extension for the Apple web browser you do not want to do without? Write us your favorites! "

Netflix 1080p

It's a strange thing: the playback quality of Netflix varies depending on the web browser and operating system used. According to its own video streaming service, Chrome, Firefox and Opera films and TV shows only in a resolution of 720p and thus in 1280 times 720 pixels - and thus remain far below the capabilities of modern Macs. Grotesquely, Chrome ships under Google's Chrome OS operating system at least 1080p. Even Apple's in-house browser Safari manages on the Mac on 1920 times 1080 pixels in 16: 9 format. It looks even better on Windows: Microsoft's current web browser Edge presents videos in the finest 4K resolution.

If you prefer to use Chrome or Firefox instead of Safari on the Mac, the resolution can fortunately help with the extension Netflix 1080p. The name is quite program: The add-on ensures that Netflix in both browsers with 1080p "sends" - after all, something! Configurations are not necessary: ​​simply load Netflix and get started is the motto!

On small screens the difference may seem less than hoped. For those who want to test the resulting resolution, Netflix personally provides some test videos.
