It did, as a beta. The stable release came out in 2003. The page below was archive on Jun 1 2002.

I tried out Steam in 2003 and it crashed a lot. I forgot about it until 2007-2008 when someone on another site brought up Team Fortress, which was still in version 1 as a game skin, IIRC. I didn't get into Steam until a few years later and stopped sometime in 2014. The software was too crash happy.

I was absolutely in love with the original steam. Coming from X-Fire, steam was a huge breath of fresh air as a PC gaming client with chat capability. Y'all are crazy. CS 1.6 will forever remain in my mind one of the definitive games of its time. Even moreso than Halo 1 or COD1 or even MoHAA for PC at the time, and I definitely played those a lot more.

Glad to hear I can finally get all of this VR crap off my steam feed once and for all lol.

Steam is of the slowest loading websites I visit; I hope they slim the store and community down, local UI however I have no care for as there's alternative skins. Either way the whole client is a slow clunky chromium based trash heap, that needs a reworking from the ground up. The steam music and video libraries need a major overhaul especially if steam OS was to ever compete with a console. Origin/uplay/GOGG all perform better no matter how much you dislike their catalog and UI [steam often randomly hangs, has poor redistributable handling, and a steam client update although doesn't change much client wise often breaks games and tools]. Some issues with steam and steamworks predate CSS and Valve is genuinely the worse AAA developer[with every update they make their games worse, graphics are far superior to competing titles, poor controller handling in most of their PC titles.... Their sales also get worse every year, and it's officially cheaper to shop at any other store even if you consider my steam credit. They're just a money hungry succubus who knows how to sell microtansactions better than any other developer. Most actual work, has always been left to their community and they profit. Greenlight has been allowing so much garbage through, not because the community thinks games will actually be good to play, but just to troll or to get a free copy because >50% of steam users are bots or game collectors who want a bigger game library number but not to play the actual game. Valve via Steam has enough market cap to make PC gaming holy and pure, they just don't enforce any restrictions or do anything for optimization.
Thanks for reading my honest rant

I don't mind the current UI in terms of looks / aesthetics but the main issue for me is how slow the responsiveness is. I prefer using the website to look around and then using the Steam program when I'm decided and buying something. It's that slow. The community hub and workshop feel even slower regarding UI responsiveness; it's a pain when looking for stuff say on Cities: Skyline when there's so many mods/addons. . =/ Everything is pretty much instant and fast when I use the website.

I certainly hope so. I have so many issues with it for some reason. Buttons become un-usable, videos become un-pauseable, system usage spikes... yuck. its only ok for basic web browsing.

It's just a wrapper for the chromium rendering engine these days and usually runs fine so long as the game is still issuing frames. It will tend to pause during load events and stuff due to the game not delivering anything to the screen.

If you think that is bad, you should have seen the browser a long time ago before it was chromium. Basically no modern content was supported, and it would take what seemed like minutes to navigate pages sometimes.
