There's a new Steam Beta client available. To access the Beta, go to File -> Settings, and on the Account tab will be a drop down. Select Steam Client Candidate, and then allow Steam to restart itself. Here are the specific changes:


- Added shopping cart, recommendations & purchasing directly on the web
- Added backend support for Left 4 Dead matchmaking
- Added backend support for Steam Cloud
- Fixed steam re-applying command line parameters (like -install) across 'change user' or 'change language' restarts
- Fixed steam refreshing the games list, refreshing the server browser if open, and reloading server brower filter settings
- Fixed the friends list placeholder for large clans disappearing when "view online friends only" was turned on
- Fixed games list not always refreshing after receiving license updates
- Fixed embedded IE control not scrolling or responding to key presses correctly
- Improved IE control perf

The shopping cart is much needed. It was completely stupid to have to purchase each game one at a time.

Can't say I've really been waiting for shopping cart myself.

That has been my first thing to have on steam and now it is:)

Yeah. When I go on Steam I always buy like 10 games. Sometimes 20 as I can help buying Peggle over and over again.

Haha, I think the shopping cart is not needed. It's not frickin' amazon. How many games are you buying at once?
