Netflix's new look is rolling out now. Last month we learned the streaming service was prepping a new-look web user interface that would do away with the carousel and have a leaner, cleaner look. And now it's here.

The interface looks quite similar to Netflix's apps for the iPad and smart TVs. It should help you find what you're looking for quicker, instead of lumbering through the slow carousel.

It also features larger thumbnails and darker colours.

Previously, you had to hover over the thumbnail to see more information about the show, but now you just click on it.

Now if you hover, you'll see a slideshow of images to get a feel for what the show or film is like.

Netflix claims the new look keeps step with recent changes in modern web browsers.

"Over the past four years, web browsers have changed a lot, becoming more sophisticated and allowing for richer visuals and animations," Netflix wrote in a blog post.

"With the new Netflix, we've created a richer, more visual experience, and a website that works more like an app and less like a series of linked web pages. Information appears in-line and in context rather than on a separate page, which makes exploring the catalog faster than ever before."

The new site should be available in all Netflix territories within the next two weeks.
