Does Netflix prefer any specific browser for best compatibility and video experience? If so, which one?
I'm using Windows 8.
I'd recommend chrome simply based off the fact that it doesn't suck. I have no problems with netflix on it, regardless. I'd recommend chrome even if I didn't use netflix.

IT'S ALWAYS BEEN WANKERSHIM
I use Chrome but for whatever reason Netflix will randomly pause on me when I'm watching seasons of something. Nothing wrong with my net or computer, not sure if it's Chrome or not, but fair warning. If it happens to you let me know so I don't feel like I'm going insane.

I've been using chrome, haven't tried the others but all is fine so far. Plus just overall prefer it.
Chrome fan boy my self, but I have had 0 issues streaming in chrome. Haven't tried any others.
My default browser is Chrome, as well. But sometimes while watching a movie it stops and never continue playing again, so I have to refresh the page or even close it and re-enter the website again, which is kind of annoying.
Oh and, forgot to mention a thing about Youtube. Sometimes the video starts playing without any audio. Usually refreshing the page fixes it, but I noticed it happening more often these days. Tried clearing history, cookies etc, but didn't help.
I'm currently testing both Netflix and Youtube, using Firefox. Will see how things will go at the end of the day.
for netflix, use the desktop version of IE10
chrome has serious issues with netflix atm
i dont use firefox so i don't know how netflix runs on it
also, youtube is better on IE10 as well

I've used IE, Firefox, and Chrome with netflix. And to be honest so far chrome seems to work the best. It seems to load faster and look better.And just to be clear I'm not a chrome fanboy, I use FF for my web browsing.
I use Chrome and I never have an issue
Honestly, I find the Netflix layout on PC really annoying, I much prefer it on a console, or internet TV type device (boxee, appletv, googletv, etc.)
But if you don't mind it and definitely want to run it from your computer, I'd say whichever browser you're most comfortable as a normal browser. If you use multiple screens, and want to surf while watching Netflix, I'd suggest you use a browser other than your "normal" browser, and just have Netflix on the second browser, just for a bit of flexibility.

The Windows 8 Netflix App is the best option for you then. Video quality is better with it, and netflix seems to run smoother then in a browser.I'm using Windows 8.

@Cyanotical, well it seems you're actually correct on IE 10. Thing runs Youtube videos and Netflix REALLY fast! But could it be because there's no previous cache/history on it since I don't use it at all?
