    This opt-in beta is available immediately to all Steam users. If users already have Steam installed on their computer, they can take part in the beta by selecting "UI Update" under Beta Participation.

    Just 'updated' to it, I'm glad to have gotten rid of that old crap they've been using for years.

    EDIT: WOW, still doesn't support the whole "drag to side of win7 and it will take up half the screen", how sad.

    Just hooked it up. Pretty sweet looking, and I like how it tells you who in your friends list has each game.

    *EDIT: I found the Friends link on the bottom right. :laugh:

    I would, but I need the sound there for games that don't support the overlay, aka Sacred2 and Stalker/

    And :| I noticed, all 11gb for a game I don't even bother with anymore, sigh Steam.


    I know, but this one is just "dsrhjvjydhzhkgjhjk RAAAHH" >_>

    tried it for about 2 minutes, couldnt stand it. too clumsy compared to the old interface.

    we want SIMPLE and CLEAN, not fancy fonts and features hidden away

    You can change that in it back to something 'similar' to old the style.

    [EDIT: In the Libary > Games tab, lol.] Top right hand corner, just below "Beta", change it to the second pic to the right of "VIEW" aka list. Same as the old version, but includes larger game "avatars".

    I don't mind the new design tbh, working well for me so far. Only issue I've had is the whole "oh hey, lets redownload MW2 in it's entirety, allll 11GB of it" :shadedshu
