Steam is an internet-based digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer, and social networking platform developed by Valve Corporation. It is used to distribute games and related media from small, independent developers and larger software houses online. In October 2012, Valve expanded its service to include non-gaming software. Steam provides the user with installation and automatic management of software on multiple computers, and community features such as friends lists and groups, cloud saving, and in-game voice and chat functionality. The software provides a freely available application programming interface (API) called Steamworks, which developers can use to integrate many of Steam's functions, including copy protection, networking and matchmaking, in-game achievements, micro-transactions, and support for user-created content through Steam Workshop, into their products.

Though initially developed for use on Microsoft Windows, versions for OS X and Linux operating systems, and a limited-function version for the PlayStation 3 console, have also been developed. Chatting and shopping applications for iOS and Android mobile devices have also been written. The success has lead to the development of a line of Steam Machine microconsoles and personal computers meeting minimum specifications, and SteamOS, a Linux-based operating system built around the Steam client.

The Steam Summer Sale when you can buy 86 games for under $100 and only have time to play 2.
Not for those with poor impulse control! Some games > 70% off and every hour-a whole new slew of offers.

Steam offers an outstanding product.
purchase and installation and uninstall is easy, and there are tons of great games to pickup.

but the part that is most amazing to me is the long term nature of the site. for instance:
1) game licenses are connected to your account, not your computer. so you can buy a new computer and lose nothing
2) it was very easy to change personal info like email addresses (I've had my account for so long that it outlasted one of my emails)
3) games from my childhood are present with no need for an emulator

The value available on the site is very high. A must for any video gamer.

Attempted to visit the website but unfortunately was not able to navigate to it with the error message stating that the "DNS address could not be found."

One of the most well-known public broadcasting and news service companies in the world, the BBC has an understandably slightly cluttered site.

However, the top bar navigation works well and the news articles are front and center right on the home page.
