Or better yet, don't. Steam's UI is terrible. Clicking search suggestions often does nothing, the search result paging is goofy as hell and very impractical, the whole thing's absurdly sluggish, in general ignores any and all system settings, menu dropdowns open upon hover instead of click, and, oh yea, my trackpad's scrolling gestures don't even fucking work on it (they work fine on nearly anything else).
That's all just off the top of my head. From what I've seen of Tk so far, Steam would have been *far* better if it had used it instead of going to the bother of reinventing everything really, really badly. (Well, at least Steam isn't all-green anymore like it used to be :/ )
