    jumplists are the future, i find it so much easier using them, load a gamewithin 2 clicks instead of having to go thru the ugly steam interface

    I actually think those jumlists are useless.

    I have to try out this beta. The ability to edit Win7 Jumplist is a great plus and the improvements to Steam Cloud are long overdue. Had a couple of incidents where stats where lost because Steam Cloud failed.
