Currently, whenever I look at the Netflix overview, it shows me trailers in the top of the page.

Also further down the page, between the category scrollers.

I find them disturbing and annoying, also sometimes they contain spoilers which I don't like.

Is there a way to disable them? Alternatively, is there a way to inject some JavaScript (maybe using a Chrome extension?), to hide them on the page?

For such tasks as removing stuff from sites, you can use Adblock Plus' future called Block element and then just select the exact element which you want to kill.

If Adblock Plus can't be used there is this extension which does the same.

  • That's a really good idea, I hadn't thought of that. Unfortunately it doesn't work on Netflix, too much random in the source path. When I try to block the top video, it shows this URI ||occ-0-713-768.1.nflxso.net/art/1ecc6/db8a0a4c9ba3de480fd3a6208a2d49136881ecc6.webp - and blocking it has no visible effect :-/ – Gertsen Mar 25 at 19:18

    I stand corrected. It does work, it just has to be done correctly. I will add an answer with full details, because I can't do it properly in the comments, but I will accept your answer since you lead me in the right direction. Thanks for the help! – Gertsen Mar 25 at 19:25
