What is Xfire?
(Pronounced "Ex-fire", not "Cross-fire") Xfire is a freeware instant messaging service targeted toward gamers, that also serves as a game server browser. Its uniqueness lies in its ability to detect what video game a particular contact is running and allowing IMs to be sent and received from inside the game in question, eliminating the need to minimize the game window. It is currently available for Microsoft Windows only. The company is based in Menlo Park, California, United States. On April 25, 2006, Xfire was acquired by Viacom in a $102-million deal. Support for Windows 98 and Windows Me has been discontinued as of January 2007. On May 7, 2007, Xfire announced they have over 7 million registered users.
On June 13, 2007, Mike Cassidy, former CEO and co-founder of Xfire, departed the company to work for venture capital firm, Benchmark Capital.
Adam Boyden, VP Business Development & Marketing is temporarily managing the company.
