Non-obvious feature... browsing Netflix

If you tap on the movie box-shot there isn't a lot of user feedback but the Netflix website movie display page for that movie starts to load in the web view. If you wait a while for it to load you can see the full details of the movie, including reviews, star ratings etc, and add to DVD queue. The first time you do this you will have to login to Netflix, but it will remember your login for subsequent visits.

When you go back to the movie list, it may have been kicked out of memory by the web page, so it could take a few seconds to re-load the list of movies, and you will start at the beginning of the list.

At any time you can instantly go back to the movie list and abandon the netflix site page load.
