I'll d/l, but since it's free and goes out on the net and searches for information (buddies) what else is it doing? spying? buttloads of cookies? what?

nothing is free, except Mozilla Firefox and AdAware :P

Does it beat TeamSpeak? (or is it an entirely different thing?)

Think AOL's or MSN's Instant messenger, but this one is for gamers. The "free" is paid for by advertisments.

Since we (you know who I'm talking about) don't use mIRC like we used to, this would be a great tool to not only see your friends online, but see what they're playing and join them.

i'm very wary of spyware and "free" myself, but XFire is incredible. It even tells you if a buddy is using TS or Ventrillo and gives you the IP for that, and a "Join" button.

I also think it's brilliant (rhiridflaidd is my x fire nick.) It gives the makers the potential to directly target it's ads depending on which game you are playing, but the banner ads aren't obtrusive, so I don't worry about them.

If you are woried about privacy, you can block your online statistics e.g. how many hours you've been playing.

BTW Han, I had the same concerns. I ran XFire all weekend, but I also had SpySweeper running in the background, and it never picked up anything. Last night I ran Spybot Search and Destroy AND Adaware, and neither of those found anything either.

So far with my usage it appears to be safe. My understanding is that XFire isn't something new. Players have been using it for a while.

And to let you know how effective this tool is - Brizz sent me an Instant Message through XFire. "Up for a game?" "Sure!" Brizz jumped on a server. XFire told me what game he was playing (UT2k4) and exactly what server he was on. All I had to do was click on one button. UT2k4 launched and put me directly in that server.

I didn't have to start the game, go the server menu, refresh my buddy list......none of that! I just clicked and joined him.
