Steam Library - new look

What do you guys think about new look for Steam Library?

Like it? Don't like it? Is it slow for 15k gamez?

I like feature that shows recently acquired games. It works great for getting bundles.

It's already a little sluggish for 300 games. It improved when I turned on GPU rendering in the settings but that added rendering artifacts when switching windows.

I've been giving it the benefit of the doubt for a week - I don't like it. It's way too noisy. All the stuff they cram into the home page and into the individual game pages, most of it is fun to see maybe once but any subsequent visit it is pointless.

It has its pluses and minuses, I don't see any slowdowns at all.

I do have an issue with the Library HOME button, it doesn't remember my last highlighted selection, so it will not got back to my FAVORITES folder and select the game that was last chosen/selected

So I'm having to use the BACK button instead which works but I used the Library HOME for so long and now have to get used to a new way of doing things.

I also don't like that the DLC is not one of the game tabs, so it has the following layout:

Store Page - Community Hub - Find Groups - Discussions - Guides - Support

So why do I have to scroll down and then try to find the DLC there ?

So is Valve TRYING to make it harder to find DLC ?!?

Or perhaps give users a CHOICE in the settings ?

Once I realized that all games -> filter on last played still works.. I felt it was ok.

Good:
Some more eye candy, better filter options in "all games" , sort by size on disk

I expect some sweet 90s style box icons for my dos games will start showing up soon

Bad:
Vertical is good for "box" style art, but crap for just showing the names.

I despise the xbox UI, where the focus clearly is sell stuff, instead of gaming.

Go to my library view, first row, can't be removed "recommendations" ffs...
But strange enough the first row of the store front isn't filled with: Better games you already own recommended from your library.

So looking around the Steam settings, I can't find a way to disable the Whats New banner from showing in your library view, guess that is a feature request

It does go away if you click on a game/app listed in one of your categories however.
