Steam startup crash FIXES
Lots of people have been having a problem with the new client where Steam will crash when you try to launch it. I know Valve fixed this with the latest Mac patch, but this is for in case there's people out there still having problems.

First I would try reinstalling it. Remember to delete it from your Applications folder and your user Library (Users/XXXX/Library/Application Support/Steam). If you have OSX Lion the Library folder is hidden, so click this link to see the fix http://www.fixkb.com/2011/08/missing-library-folder-in-mac-os-x-lion.html

If that doesn't work, go to the Steam folder in your Library (Users/XXXX/Library/Application Support/Steam) and delete the registry.vdf file. Steam will automatically replace it, hopefully with a working copy.

If you're still having trouble, check and make sure your software is updated. That's what was wrong with mine. After I updated my computer Steam has been running very smoothly.
