You can add or subtract movies from your queue, sort through your history and recs, browse top movies by genre, etc., and here's the killer part: Browse and play "Watch Now" streams (especially since they're all-you-can-eat.) It's in public beta, so it might have a few rough spots, but he wants the feedback, so be sure to check it out if you've got a Netflix account and a Vista box.

Anyone given this a shot? I'm curious if it allows you to specify the quality of your "watch it now" download. I've found the netflix watch it now service to be pretty worthless over my meager DSL line since it won't let me select a higher quality stream to be watched in non-realtime. So I get either a super over compressed grainy crap which looks something like a video game cutscene circa 1993 or NOTHING.
