View IMDb ratings and links for movies on Netflix movie pages. IMflixDB adds a bit of additional convenience to Netflix!
IMflixDB augments Netflix pages with basic information about the movie, which is taken from IMDB.com database.
Adds an info bar to the top of a movie page with this:
* IMDb rating and number of votes for the movie you're currently browsing
* Netflix's Star version of the IMDb rating. E.g., 7.7/10 is 3.85 stars
* link to IMDb page for the current movie
* unobtrusive, small "buy this on Amazon" link, that shows amazon's prices for the current movie. Automatically chooses between Amazon.com and Amazon.ca.
