I always think about this whenever I get messages from my friends from Facebook when I am playing a game. And I always donít have access to steam and because of this it becomes difficult to chat with friends when they are playing games. And I think it this is the problem with many users of Steam. I think it will be little difficult for steam to make a chat client that will have support for different protocols in Steam. Therefore, I think Steam should just release documentation on the protocol that Steamís friends use. This will enable people to make plugins for Digsby, Meebo or Trillan etc. and then we will be able to talk with our friends on Steam also when they are playing game. What are your saying about this?
