Inspired by Big Picture Mode

I wanted something to compliment the new Steam visual design you'll find in the store and in Big Picture Mode. There's no layout changes and I did my best to make the colors as pleasant as possible to stick with the design theme.

    Is there a way to make this ui a nice green colour? or be able to have different colour options in general? that's just my 2cents. Great ui colouring though

    Nothing much new, you brought that color scheme to the default browser. 

    As my rating implies, you brought nothing new - just a few color tweaks. Care to share a shot of the chat view? I spend a lot of my time on Steam just talking to people. 

    As for the rest, I literally just shop and play - most of my games are shortcuts in my winnexus bar. 

    I differ on your "nothing new" opinion, the placement of the colors is new. Sure they were present in the original SteamV4, however I have made scheme adjustments to fit the interests of people such as myself who grow tired of the grey Steam and would like to see a visual improvement, like they (at Steam) ve done with the other aspects of their service. That's all this is intended to be, as it is stated in the description. 

    The chat window is present in the first image, upper right-hand corner, next to the friends list.

    Downloaded it to give it a fairer assessment. 

    In Tile View - the padding of play/details is off. For some reason, my header section (Store, Library, Etc) is tiny compared to the original/your screenshots. 

    Those two are the only inconsistencies I could find. Things I do not like is the color of the scrollbar and the gradient used for the active friend chat window. 

    Thank you! I'll get to work on those immediately, v0.19 - here I come! :-)
    I did change the font from v0.17 (picutred above as Arial) to v0.18 (Segoe UI). That is what seems to be causing the padding issues you're seeing, so in the next version I'm switching back to Arial for the time being (until I can figure out how to make Segoe work in the Library). Did you like it otherwise or is it too small?

    Size wise, even the top banner links, everything was ok in my opinion. Though I enjoy minimalism in design - really the default skin's top links are so damn big for no reason - and as long as I can click the link to play my games I don't really care how big that text is.

    Love the skin although, one minor problem. Wrong game put it as Steam when submitting this GUI


    Oh I thought I did haha

    That's fixed now, hopefully now more people will see it appropriately XD
