Chrome, Firefox: One of the more annoying aspects of watching Netflix on your laptop or desktop computer is the trailers the service likes to automatically play on your behalf.

Organize Your Excessive Browser Tabs with ‘Toby’

I recently stumbled across the extension Toby (Chrome, Firefox), and I’m surprised at how much I love it.

Amazon and Google have been duking it out for the past few months, and it doesn’t look like the two companies will come to an agreement anytime soon.
