    "I agree there is some added JUNK, but overall its the same Yahoo IM we all love"

    August 5, 2006  |   By CableguyTK

    Pros

    Its free.

    It has a fresh interface which smokes AIM 5.9 and AIM Triton's in that department.

    Supports filesending, photosharing, voice chat, etc.

    Seems to be a bit more robust, allowing more connections behind firewalls and routers and such.

    Cons

    Includes optional Yahoo Toolbar. I think it has always included this. I just think they should remove it. Ill have to check to see if MSN tries to get you to install MSN toolbar, but I know AOL asks to install AOL Toolbar with AIM 5.9.

    Comes with advertisement at the bottom of the main buddy list window. There is no option in the preferences to remove it. The only way to remove it is by modification of a registry entry...very simple.

    It is still the awesome Yahoo IM client contrary to what everyone says on here. I really havent experienced any connection or speed issues associated with it. Yes, it does show a large memory footprint, but which OFFICIAL IM CLIENT doesnt? I say official because I am aware that there are non-official clients which have small memory footprints. I just love the photosharing features...and the cool interface. It is a winner. The only real negative is that AOL IM is such a dominant network in terms of the USA that great clients like Yahoo IM never really get the limelight here in the USA.
