American video game company Valve has released a big update for its video game digital distribution service Steam. The update will now offer a number of small but significant tweaks to the digital games store. According to The Verge, several of these changes have been available in beta for months, but now they're hitting the software's stable release channel. The update will overhaul the downloads page and introduce a much-improved section for managing your storage, amongst a host of other tweaks and fixes.

The downloads page has been given a bulk of improvements. For starters, along with showing download progress, the page now also shows installation progress. It should cut down on those frustrating moments when a game appears to be fully downloaded but isn't playable because it's not yet fully installed.
