Steam: New UI and Netflix Sign-In coming soon?

It's time! Even more stuff is coming to Steam it seems. Someone at SteamDB found a lot of hints in one of the latest Steam Beta releases - the new UI design is not all. Apps, comics, music, TV shows and movies are on their way. Some of the game icon choices are weird for example an eight-year-old Mirror's Edge cover so it basically looks like a placeholder image.

I was positively surprised when I saw they've removed the diagonal stripes from the top menu of all GUI windows. They've replaced them with a little, subtle tint…
