Xfire’s server browser is built into the client so you don’t need another app running while gaming.

You can send and receive messages from inside games without having to minimize (Alt+Tab). Your IMs appear on-screen, hit Scroll Lock + X to respond. Also take screenshots by pressing Scroll Lock + S and upload them to your profile page.
Xfire’s voice chat lets you talk 1:1 or in groups with your friends while you’re in or out of game. You can also download the latest mods, patches, and trailers for your favorite games over a P2P file network. Xfire shows off your gaming stats, such as the games you play and how many hours you’ve played them. They’re on your profile and Miniprofile, which can be embedded anywhere on the web. It supports many popular online PC games, including server and non-server based First Person Shooters, Real Time Strategy, and Role Playing Games. Newly suggested games are added.
