    Yeah, I agree. But, it is pretty refreshing to see a company actually try to address the issues, and try and give people options. I'm more used to Google changing shit up, and if you bitch and complain, they tell you to pretty much "fuck off, and deal with it!".

    Not a huge fan of the new layout myself, uses way too much space to display things I don't care about so that's nice.

    Would be better if they let us completely customize the entire layout, IMO, but this is good enough.

    I'm not enrolled in beta (don't trust it) so I gotta wait.

    Good, because I was abstaining from updating steam until they did so.

    I don't care what Valve thinks, anybody with the 250+ game badge probably can't physically manage their shit with the new view.

    Eh? You must have a really tiny screen, then.

    For some reason, it appears the URL in that link is completely wrong. GBAtemp appears to screw up non-HTTP/HTTPS/FTP/FTPS URIs. Punch that in the address bar.

    Ah there we go, thanks! It's working. Though I wish it could be incorporated into the actual client. Not willing to sign up for beta either. Guess I'll just have to wait.

    Options are always nice. I actually prefer the new look. Now if they would put if a game was multiplayer or not without having to go to the Store page for a game would be nice..

    @chaoskagami I have two 24" screens, it is still a tiny scrolling list for the games at the left side by default, only after toggling an option after every start the 75% of the steam window on the right are used to display game specific information.

    The big issue with the new UI is that the rectangles are oriented vertical for the game images. Steam Big Picture mode meanwhile orients the rectangles are horizontal. Good luck choosing a a custom image for games that don't have an image at all or for custom shortcuts.

    Maybe they can also add back the preview demos that disappeared from my damn library when I installed the beta. Had to go back to stable to download them again.
