Gfire is an open-source plugin for the Pidgin Instant Messenger client. It allows users to connect to the Xfire Gaming network and chat to your friends. Gfire currently allows you to chat with your friends, add and remove friends, view Xfire profile and join your friend’s game, group chat, clan support and file transfer.
Gfire is mainly for Linux users to be able to connect to the Xfire network (since there isn’t a native Linux client), but Windows users can use the Plugin as well. All you need is a Windows or Linux computer, Pidgin 2.5+ and you’re ready to use Gfire!
The Gfire project is under the GPLv3 license. You can freely download, use and edit the code. We encourage helping with the development of Gfire, so please get involved!
