    Can agree with that some rearranging would be nice, even better if we had the freedom to rearrange the content ourself

    Agree wholeheartedly. Invidual widgets/buttons may look better in new dashboard, but layout of old 1 was close to perfect. I had very few issues with it. Looked good and was clean

    I like the colors and some icons design, the rest is pretty much weird. Too much wasted space, instead of picking something to improve, making use of the previous non used spaces in the main page, they instead revamped everything that actually gives us even more dead spaces with an horrible layout (OP is self-explanatory).

    Anyway, when people get out of their way to say this, even though it's not constructive criticism, we need stop and reflect about the topic itself. Something is really wrong.
    Although, a lot of people like new dashboard, including me and like 10 people in my friend list. What are we gonna do?

    Provide feedback and reason to why it's good and better than the old one. Valve then will make a choice for the best of the majority or what they seem to fit to their own standards. We are here just to light the direction for them, only then they will take their step should they choose to do so.

    Nice analysis there.

    On a serious note, I preferred the old one too. The new one just need a bit of rearrangement to look nicer.

    The only thing i would like to see is a possibility to minimize that browser. I dont need it all the time.
    Dock-able interface would be nice as well (like in Jira).

    The old one looks definitely better.

    Husky from SC2 just praised it some time ago, and then Valve decide to change it into this new version which looks worse.

    He explained from a competitive gamer's perspective why the old UI was considered good.

    I remember that. Thanks for posting this, I always wanted to send a private message to a game developer to watch this but I figured out someone else would do it anyway. Well, I'm not sure if that already happened, but it seems like you can do it!
