With more and more teens and customers using Instant Messaging it is no surprise to me that Yahoo also decided to update Yahoo Messenger into a web based chat with no software to download. The new application works with Opera, Firefox, Internet Explorer and is available on any Internet-connected computer.
Yahoo Messenger allows for multiple conversations, taking offline messages, using multi tabs and even searchable archives of old conversations.
"Yahoo rivals Google and Microsoft already have Web-based versions of their instant-message applications with Gmail, which launched in 2004, and MSN Web Messenger, respectively."
If you are not convinced yet Yahoo Messenger also has custom ringtones for each of your friends, free PC-to-PC calls and photo sharing with drag-and-drop photos into your IM chat window.
