New Steam Client Released

Steam News announces the new Steam client is out of beta, and now available. The accompanying update also says the promised Mac client is "coming soon." Here's word:
The 2010 Steam client is now live! The overhaul changes many things about how information is organized on Steam, and makes it easier to do the most important things on the platform, like play games with friends. We wrote up an overview of what's new, so definitely check that out so that you don't miss anything. As we've mentioned, the beta testing went well - participants suggested valuable changes and reported lots of bugs for us to squash.

We're very interested in your thoughts on the new client, so please stop by the forums to tell us what you think.

P.S. This is the first post in the official Steam Blog. It's hard for us to believe we've never had a blog until now. Anyway, watch this space for thoughts from Steam central. Coming soon: Mac!

The small/quick view of games I switched constantly back and forth from now takes 2 clicks since its in a view menu, instead of 1 click on a button.
Do what now? Opening your games list is one click - "Library." Am I missing something?

...and didn't seem to bother to check logs of what common tasks people do and how to improve the efficieny of them
Don't mistake things YOU use often for things PEOPLE use often. B/c they are not the same. I'm guessing Valve did quite a bit of analyzing traffic and this is what they've come up with based on usage patterns. Reorganizing things to be more efficient for the majority will most likely make some things less efficient for some minorities.
