Yahoo Unveils Web Messenger

by PocketGoddess on May 3, 2007

It looks like Yahoo took a page out of Google’s book–a new beta version of Yahoo Messenger works in any Flash-enabled web browser, which means that you no longer have to download and install a separate application just to talk to your friends. I’ve tried it out and it works just great–the interface is nice and clean and very cool-looking, but there’s a huge ad running down the right side of the window that you can’t get away from.
Other new features include history, so that you can search previous conversations, as well as the ability to add contacts from the Windows Live Messenger service. You can’t use IMvironments, but you the usual smileys and the option to change the text color is still there.
You can access the beta version here.
