No, instead it is a truly dreadful Adobe AIR app with the performance and usability of a slug. Christ, Steam is an AWFUL app.
It is great that we have Steam on the Mac and great that the number of games available has probably quadrupled as a result, but to state that Steam is not a duct-taped port is incredibly blinkered. Performance is atrocious (not a single trailer will play without skipping multiple frames on my 24" 2.8GHz iMac, ffs - but they play as well as they can in the browser version of the steam website), navigation is a nightmare of poor usability, windows open in the background regardless of how many times you close them and will not go away (e.g. the Add a Friend window), the window widgets and chrome are the horrible fakes that all AIR apps get, sidebars can't be resized so your are SOL if a game title or other information goes beyond the edge of the sidebar, etc.
The Mac aspect of the Steam store is also very, very weak:
If you want only to find Mac games with demos, good luck with that as there is no separate section for them.
None of the category's or genres let you filter by Mac availability, so you either have to trawl through hundreds of Windows games to find the few Mac-compatible ones, or, well forget about it entirely because there is no way to only find Mac games in a particular genre.
Steam on the Mac = great
Actual implementation = [censored] horrible.

Funny thing is that since then, I've replaced my use of macros mostly by use of the Indirect function. Everything is automatic.

This is likely because your bank prevents the auto-entering of passwords—it's coded into the Website.
