How to revert back to old Steam Friends UI

First disable starting steam at user login by unchecking the box in Steam > Settings > Interface > Run Steam when my computer starts

You need a shortcut to Steam on your desktop.

Right click the shortcut and go to Properties.

Append the text in the target box with -nochatui -nofriendsui

Target box should now look like this:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe" -nochatui -nofriendsui

Press OK

Start Steam with this shortcut from now on.

On Linux you can achieve the same results by appending the same options ( -nochatui -nofriendsui ) to the Exec line in the file:
/usr/share/applications/steam.desktop
