I got a year + of Netflix free from a professional group I'm a part of. I haven't had Netflix in maybe 4 years. Does the auto-starting of everything bother anyone else? Like how do I just surf around without having everything start playing? Can I disable it somewhere?

I was catching up on Linux Unplugged and heard that they are down a sponsor and are trying to build their contributor base instead of promoting shave products and underwear. I myself have learned so much from their podcasts over the last 10 years and would really like them to continue their content gainfully. So if you enjoy them too, please consider being a member.
