A sad day for steam users

While I still have yet to restart my client, the doomsday clock is ticking for me should my PC restart or steam crash, as they have finally dropped that horrible update to the steam client.

Amidst public outcry where even during beta testing half the opt-in testers were looking at this and saying "....really?!"

The Majority asks only one thing: "Give us an option to revert this."


I don't know what Valve is planning with this move but if you have low end systems you will not like this update as several people are reporting the new flashy UI being super laggy and a few even saying its freezing their laptops solid.

I on the other hand am going to hold on to the current build as long as circumstances allow, because if theres one thing I simply cannot stand about anything its fixing what isn't broke in order to "match" other sites. Its not like a big player like Steam has any right to carve their own design trends, obviously not.

I prefer Steam over Epic Games for more than 1 reason, but now Steam looks just like Epic Games...

    Not too bad. I still prefer the old library solely for the fact that it's not as slugish tho.

    Steam added a setting to disable previews of pictures of games in the library. It was because of them that the performance was low. Now steam consumes resources and works stable as it was before.

    It's honestly less bad then when they did the friends list thing. That's not to say that removing the old option was a good idea, it wasn't, but if you want some help, check out the steam friends patcher.

    It's on github and allows you to modify the css that the library uses.

    I have a Core 2 Duo and G41 Integrated Graphics and activating the optimizations for the library in the settings make it pretty acceptable at least on linux

    Not sure what there is to complain about. My PC isn't new and it runs fine on it. I really prefer the new layout over the empty one from before.
