“Not only does this extension give you double subtitles, it gives you a live dictionary for your target language and amazingly useful controls to skip to the next or previous subtitle in case you missed anything, instead of skipping back 10 whole seconds,” one happy user wrote on Jan. 28.
“I am absolutely amazed,” the review continues. “This extension has, not even exaggerating here, changed my life. As a passionate language learner and passionate Netflix watcher, wow. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.”
Another fan added on Jan. 17, “This is exactly the kind of language-learning tool we need. Learning a language while immersing oneself in its media is an excellent way to make organic progress.”
But not everyone has had luck with the widget. “It was very buggy and kept crashing my browser,” one individual commented on Oct. 17. “I had to uninstall it and install it multiple times to finally get it to work.” A second irritated user wrote, “A good idea, but one of the most horrible interfaces.”
