EA Origin client is decent as it is but it’s no Steam. It needs some improvements and UI design changes to make it smoother and perform better. Thankfully, that is exactly what EA will be doing.
Here’s a look at the new update:
As you can see, chat/friends list button has been moved to the bottom. EA has also reorganized the games library section of Origin Client. This allows you to see when the game is downloading or updating itself.
The online EA Store is better integrated into the client. You can also see which of your friends are currently online. Original client redesign update is currently in beta and only available to beta members.
EA will soon make it available for public use.
