Valve has announced some more updates to Steam Labs, their new testing area for features that may make it into Steam officially at some point.
Firstly, there's something entirely new. You can opt-in to the new Search experiment which will tweak the way you see and interact with lists across the entire Steam store, as opposed to being limited to the Labs area. It adds in: infinite scroll; price and sale filters; the ability to hide items on your wishlist or items you already own or you've ignored and multiple updates to the way tag filtering works.
I actually really like what they've done with the search, it's quite handy and should make finding games you want a lot easier.
The Micro Trailers experiment also saw a big update, which has enabled it for all Steam games. On top of that, it will also let you now pick a tag to view these 6 second trailers. It's a pretty heavy page though and it even crashed my Firefox tab when turning on Auto Play, although a refresh seemed to work. Once these make it onto store pages, I can imagine them being quite useful to get a quick glance.
Valve have also now formally announced the new Deep Dive experiment being made by game developer Lars Doucet, based on his Diving Bell prototype which is actually really cool. You click a game, it then highlights that and surrounds it with other possible games you might be interested in. A really sweet idea! I spoke to Doucet on Twitter (see the replies to this), where they confirmed they will be speaking to Valve about making sure it respects your Steam platform preferences so hopefully those who only want to see Linux titles can have that.
The fact that Valve are actually bringing in game developers and others who've made interesting tools, goes to show how they're changing and trying to react quicker to the needs of both users and developers. It's good to see, hopefully more improvements to come.
