As noted by The Loop, Steam today is officially taking its Big Picture feature out of beta and launching the feature for all in an automatic update when launching the app. The feature is essentially a slick full-screen mode designed specifically for connecting your Mac (or PC) to your TV and playing Steam games on the big screen. It also features a web browser that was also designed with game controllers in mind.
