Issue Report: Steam icon is fuzzy
The Steam icon is provided up to a size of 48x48px — from the looks of it, this icon is straight from the Windows client. This results in a fuzzy Steam icon in many cases: the dash in Unity; the Launcher in Unity if configured to be larger than the default; essentially anywhere in GNOME Shell; the Ubuntu Software Centre (if / when the package shows a Steam icon). Linux desktop software generally assumes that application icons are available at large sizes.

Here are some screenshots:

I think it suffices to say this small icon does not fit in at all.

I suggest borrowing icons from the Mac version of Steam, instead, up to at least 128x128. Any bigger would be lovely, too. We like pretty icons :)

Additionally, an svg version of the icon would be nice.

Changes in the newest client have overwritten the ability to use a custom icon for steam.
This picture shows what it should look like with my Faenza Icon Pack for Gnome (steam.svg) and how it looks like. It's not a dealbreaker but it would be nice to have it back, because some people like a consistent appearance. The icon is in /usr/share/icons/Faenza/Apps/steam.svg and has succesfully overwritten the icon provided by Valve automatically since the release of the first client without me ever doing anything.

With the latest update the icon is looking pretty again! Thanks Valve for taking notice of this.
