Another Steam User Record

Just a week after setting a new Steam record of 10,761,566 players, the Steam Game and Player Statistics page shows that mark was obliterated over the weekend, when 11,625,415 users were logged in at once (thanks DSOGaming). The two most popular games listed are Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, each of which boasts more concurrent users than the rest of the top 10 combined.

I don't get what you are describing. Based on you saying you get randomly logged out all the time...I'd say there is an issue with your connection somewhere between you and the Steam servers. Could be settings at your ISP, could be a faulty modem/router, or could just be a bad node somewhere.

I had it happen for like a day recently... fine now, regardless.

Overall, I'd describe Steam's software quality as "quirky". Very little that's game-breakingly bad (although it's mysteriously deleted a couple of games from my inventory before - sometimes it was doing me a favor, but I contacted Valve when it happened with Portal 2. They got it sorted out in about a week), but quite a few little things that make it feel like something short of a mature piece of software. UI lags, display quirks, and an update system with a proclivity toward locking up the entire application for a few moments... but since most of these mostly get filed under "nuisances", and tend to be experienced by those who are the most disproportionately invested in the platform, these usually get swept under the rug. Not necessarily terrible for the users, but it provides a broken feedback loop for developers.
