    Better than it was but still pretty ugly, to me anyway. Needs a major overhaul really, the Steam client does too and has for a while.

      Steam for mac really needs to start acting like a mac application and less like a windows application turned mac (which it is).

    That is a LOT of copy.

      It's a major overhaul. And a good one in my opinion.

      And I've noticed the site loads much faster now. Don't know if the revamped interface helped with this or not.

      2178 words of body copy. Not sure what they were thinking...

      It's not a marketing site, it's an announcement page for something integral to everyday gaming that users have grown to be intimately familiar with over the last decade. They are as in-depth as they need to be, and I bet a very large amount of users are reading through the entire thing (such as myself!)

        You're right Trevor — it's not a marketing site advertising a product to potential customers. I'd call it a close sibling to a marketing page, though. Through the use of imagery and a lot of text, it's breaking down the new features and changes for current core Steam users.

        It's just a whole lot of copy. Enough of that text is marketing fluff that I'm scratching my head a bit.

        (That said, I recognize a lot of folks are more interested and invested in Steam than I am — and I will gladly raise a glass for about anything Valve ships!)

    A couple of things:

    1. Add more white space, content is really cramped together.
    2. Create a better visual hierarchy in the copy. Most copy has the same weight and color.
    3. Make content more digestible. For example, in the section "Recommendation Feed" you could split the copy in two columns.

    It looks fine to me but I guess it's a bit out of date. Reminds me a little bit of the last site from maxdome - last year. http://bit.ly/1mqvbmw
