So the fact that the in-game browser was used and a website left a cookie for you makes you uninstall?

LOL, OMG Steam is tracking me! It's evil, I hate it, and it's an awful development for PC gaming....how dare you check to make sure I bought my games before I play them, you evil money grubbing bastards!

Really though, as has been pointed out, using the browser in the Steam overlay can leave cookies, and yes even *GASP* tracking cookies in your Steam folders. So uninstalling Steam b/c of this, is just a tad over reactionary.
