The rest of the new features are less complex. One important addition is the ability to detect Steam Steam Games Management and Online Store Gets A Redesign Read More games and add them to Game Booster’s “GameBox” launcher.

      The service stop/start is cool. I'm just not sure of the performance impact being a game changer.
