How to speed up Steam's web browser

If you've used Steam for any length of time, I'm sure you've noticed that the web browser can be very slow.

close steam and navigate here
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\config (or wherever you have steam installed)
delete the following folders
  • cookies
  • htmlcache
  • overlaycookies
  • overlayhtmlcache
Steam doesn't delete the cache files, etc which slows it down significantly. (ccleaner misses these files)
Once done, you should see a signficant improvement in speed.
For me those folders included 5336 files and occupied 667MB of space. Clearing out the folders immediately made Steam's browser run faster.
