I think even if you get past the silverlight part that you still won't have the DRM widevine module that Netflix requires.

Since Chrome doesn't have a 32 bit version anymore, I think the fastest to get where you want is to install Fred's new Firefox portable. It will automatically install the widevine lib file when you first open Firefox. You can put it on /mnt/home and avoid filling up your save file/folder.

See http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=112376

There are probably complex workarounds to get Palemoon to work, but Firefox is the quickest path to success.

@ SolusUmbra:-

If you prefer the stability of the Firefox ESR (Extended Support Release) versions, I've just put together a portable version of the most recent, FF 60.5.1 esr. I'm watching NetFlix in it right now, so I know it'll do what you want.

You can find the post here, at the end of Fred's 'Quantum-portable' thread:-
