They also dumped IE from the overlay and Steam and use WebKit and Chrome as their web rendering engine

Any "gaming" issues? Hate to try this out only to find my games no longer work! My beta testing days aren't what they used to be. No patience.

Overlay performance is way better and I have yet seen any problems with my games.

A full list of changes and updates can be found here towards the bottom of the page under the category "Everything, Always, Forever": A Brand New Steam

I would love to. Since it's the first public Beta released, there's nothing more to expect. The most known bug and perhaps biggest is most people can't even open steam because it crashes as soon as it starts, me included. You can take a look at their forum for other bugs and solutions. The Steam 2010 UI update - Steam Users' Forums
The biggest bugs is suppose to be fixed within an hour or two.

Edit: The fix is out already.
