Steam Web Store Totally Looks Like Steam Client Store
By on March 28th, 2010

I apologize if you did not get the slight Twitter-ish pun in the title. It was very subtle. Anyway, on to the point the Steam store that you access via your web-browser looks exactly like the Steam store you access from the client, complete with auto-buffering muted video  {Not anymore. See Updated news}  (at least on my Chrome). Ugh.

Steam client
This is the website on the browser now…

Steam client
…and this is the store on the Steam client.

Ogres and Autoplay
As well as the irritating auto-play option.

Why would Valve do such a thing, especially when users absolutely hated auto-play?

UPDATE

Well, it sure seems like Valve saw this post OR somehow it recognized my browser as a Steam client. Either way, everything’s back to normal now.
