New Steam?

Views on the new Steam?

I've just updated mine, and it's very sleek and sexy. Love the new game tab. When you click on the game and the background changes to whatever. <3 I like the fact that any games on your favorites are also on that pop-up table when you right-click the little Steam icon.

I've been using it for awhile on the Beta. (shrugs) No real thoughts. Never had any complaints with the older one.

Dont like it. Aside from the region blocking of game sales, it takes me a couple extra steps to get to a couple places I could normally get to straight away. Plus theres some shitty lack of refresh memory issue with it for me. If I open another window ontop of a steam chat window the stupid thing bleeds in from behind unless I minimize it and open again with another window. Very shitty. Why couldnt they just leave the option to stay with the old one. That at least WORKED.

You can change it to other modes if performance is an issue. I really love the default mode though. Try Game Grid & Small Mode if ya like.

You'll have to point out where the other modes are for me. I dont see anything in skins etc when I first tried to change things back.

Under View at the top of the Steam client, choose Games Details, Games List, Games Grid, or Small Mode.

Thats not the part thats giving me problems. Its the entire thing. Any window open in steam like a chat window or a channel window, it just seems to eat more resources and refresh is a bit broken. For me.
