Default Steam Friends list: Help

Why am I not able to connect to Steam's Friends lists? Is it just me or are others here having the same problem or does it just not work yet? Either way FU STEAM! I am not happy with your total control of my gaming experience.

The features i like about it is the ability to talk to people ingame. task switching to IM windows on source engine is a total no go.

From what I gather xbox live works like a charm, always.

Friend of mine uses it regularly and it never fails on him (unless it's his connection problem)

Why, oh why, can't steam "just work"??? Sucks to be a steam user, HAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHAAH

Yeah, Valve should take note of Xbox Live. I've never had a problem with that Friends list, hell you can even view who's online and send messages to them from a computer. Sometimes, you really do get what you pay for

My Steam friends list did work a few times in the past, but it's been months since I've been able to connect successfully. For now, consider the feature non-existant.
