Link to my Google+ post about it:

Basically, Netflix recently revealed that IE and Chrome on Windows now support the extensions needed for HTML5 streaming. I figured that the Linux build of Chrome was similar enough to contain the same extensions, so I decided to just spoof Windows on my Chrome v38 (Beta) install AND IT FREAKING WORKED.

Hope it works for the rest of you all as well

(I just hope Firefox catches up with those extensions soon, because I don't like having to open a second browser just for Netflix :P )
