Loving The Steam Update
Finally the STEAM client doesn't run like a poor mans HTML browser. It's much faster after this update in all areas and all the videos are working again and not requiring a seperate version of Flash. Scrolling is much smoother and it even has a PS4 finish to it Kudos to Valve this is how it should have been months and months ago. I've been using my HTML browser for so long to browse the store etc. Finally I can actually use the client the way it was meant to be.

PS remove the bootup sound and logo from Big Screen Mode please.

Umm, the loading is still the same. Slow as ever. I don't think they changed anything under the hood, so you're feeling a placebo effect.

Ugh STEAM has ran like crap on HTML for ages. This update has finally given it the performance increase it deserved.

Well, you must be over--excited.

Actually I'm quite happy I don't have to load my browser everytime I want to look at something I'm already looking at in the STORE just because the performance of the STEAM client was so dismal. Many users including myself have been asking for this performance update for quite some time. The old STEAM client when benchmarked to any browser was the slowest of them all. Have you ever benchmarked any HTML 5 browsers? They are all different.

They did upgrade the browser quite significantly. It was based on Chromium Embedded Framework 1 and Chromium 18, now it's Chromium Embedded Framework 3 and Chromium 35.

Im loving the blue as I just noticed it's also used in the downloads that are pending or qued etc. Library list looks spiffy.

He's talking about the client itself, not browser.
