    Yeah that's really good. It also shows you the total download size too. Can't believe they didn't have that before. Helps so much especially when you're an a limited download per month plan and each game is >8GB.

    I like this new UI but I hope they make the scrolling feel more smooth. Right now, scrolling just doesn't feel right.

    • Menus don't work (text not shown)
    • I keep getting that Steam is not responding, which lasts from 1 to 10 seconds
    • I have to redownload MW2

    I'd say: opt-out of this beta. Wait till it goes live and you're forced to use it; most bugs should be ironed out by that time anyway.

    Looks like a mix of Zune and the old Xbox dashboard to me.

    If it's redownloading a game such as MW2 pause the download and verify game cache. Should fix the prob. As for the white screen testshell-error, go into IE. Tools/Internet options/Connections/LAN settings and untick the automatically detect settings box.

    I love the new UI, and it finally has a clock on the steam overlay!!! But I do miss the "minimized" Game list

    about the re-downloading: im also on a pretty strict download limit(40GB/month), so i have made a backup of all my steam games with their latest patches. It does take up extra hard drive space, but games are re-installed really quickly, without worrying about the download size.

    Blah, I was wondering why I had to redownload MW2. I wonder if switching back will allow me to play it... somehow I don't think it will now that it's started already. Blast, I wanted to play it too (just formated and have a brand new Razer Mamba mouse and I need to kill people with it! ;) )

    mw2 is re-download. but i just pause it coz i bought it retail, i can install from dvd. TF2 also seems to download something as well. the friends list window also appear to be bigger now.
    i think the game redownload isnt a bug, its just to make valve games, or any games that support steam clouds, is to make compatible for steam ingame overlay
