The latest major update to Steam adds options for customization and discoverability.

If you have logged into Steam today, you probably noticed that the storefront looks a lot different. That's because the newest update to Steam, titled Discovery Update 2.0, has made some major changes. Valve says that the new update adds "new tools, features and functionality" that "give you even more control over your browsing experience."

You'll find that the update adds direct links to common destinations in the store, as well as a section that shows products you have recently viewed. You'll also see Steam deals featured prominently, as well as what your friends are doing.

The featured section now includes expanded information about the games shown there, including tags, screenshots, and notes from curators or friends. You can check out all of the updates on the home page of your Steam store, or you can see Valve's page highlighting of all the changes right here. Those changes should come in handy now that the holiday Steam sale dates have leaked.
