I thought Steam used it's own custom Webkit based browser in everything now? IE should have no effect on it at all anymore.

And, back on topic.

Steam Summer Sale. I want it. Now. Like, right now. I have money to burn. On video games. Cheap video games.

Yup, the steam client is based on more of a chrome-like browser, I believe.
"Steam client update released
29 Apr 2010

A Steam client update is now available. To apply the update, click the File menu inside of Steam and then select "Check for Steam Client Updates...". The specific changes include:

Steam Client
  • Fixed high CPU usage on some machines caused by WebKit windows running their frame loop at a fast rate even when not visible"




And yes, I skipped Bulletstorm from gamersgate the other day. And what are the odds portal 2 will be on sale this summer...with my luck it'll be another hour long sale and I'll be at work where I can't access the store. I need a favour from someone...

Today's steam deal, Frontlines Fuel of War, is hard to reccomend, unless you have $5 burning a hole in your pocket and are really desperate for a quick weekend fix. Personally I'd grab Hydrophobia (if it's still on sale) and wait for the summer sale.
