    I'm having no problems.

    One thing I dislike is that the game store pages automatically start playing video. A minor nuisance, but otherwise the client feels snappier and looks much, much better.

    Glad they got rid of IE and went with webkit. I'm guessing that they're possibly making a client for OS X... maybe that might actually help revive the mac gaming scene- not that I'd ever buy a mac, but it's good that Valve may be reaching out to other platforms.

    Here's an amusing picture I found on the Steam forums. If this was posted already or something similar then please forgive me.

    The new Steam UI is so advanced it knows what you're going to play IN THE FUTURE:

    Apparently not shopped but who cares even if it is, it's funny :p

    Please do not opt-in for any more beta. The point of beta is to test unexpected behavier like this. The first thing you need to do is to report it to steam instead of complaining in other forum so they knew this happened and they can get it fixed before live.

    Yeah, it amazes me the stuidity of people who use beta software and complain when things go wrong.

    I fully expect the worst, but curiosity gets the best of me, and if a new version of Steam wiped my HDD, then it was my fault for using it.

    Well, u know.. if the END-USER might actually start to read and carefully understand the EULA, perhaps they'll end to sing for "I do not accept the terms in the License Agreement".

    Haha are you guys feeling OK? Almost everyone, including myself, voted they love it.

    Where is the classic guru negativity and cynicism?

    edit: I'm ignoring the idiots who have a problem with the beta and yet just moaning - report to Valve if anything!

    This causs problems if you have multiple steam installs.

    I have 2 from previous OS installs, normally when i do a new OS install, i just reinstall steam, dont download any games and use the old steam.exe's to load their games, doesnt work anymore with this Beta.

    Happens here too.... I sent a report to Steam in hoping that they look into to it. Just send a report to it with the problem you have.....thats why it is a Beta as it was meant for testing purpose.

    Same here, around 50%, but i honestly wouldn't of known if i hadn't checked.
    What did it use before?

    If i download and play the video it uses around 35-40% in SMP though, 25-35% in WMP, and 10-20% in MPC, so for 1280x720 its a touch high.

    Hm. So creating a shortcut to the old/previous steam.exe won't work?

    You literally have to download all games?

    The only real problem I had was text not appearing in the in-game GUI. It's fixed now. Valve did a good job with this new UI update.
