"Yahoo Messenger has the most features of any messenger program ever created"

August 13, 2005  |  By Atomic Radish

 |  Version: Yahoo Messenger 6.0

Pros

Launch Radio is a must. I become completely addicted to Yahoo IM once this was added.

Voice chat client works excellent!

Other users can "call" you (voice chat), and you have your own custom ringtones

It doenst have the annoying "WARN" feature that AIM has

It doesnt have the ads that AIM has

It isnt associated with The Microsoft Network

Cons

Nothing at all!

"Good Messenger, but AIM and MSN are better... much better."

August 12, 2005  |  By Adachic

 |  Version: Yahoo Messenger 6.0

Pros

I like the interface and emoticons... that's pretty much it.

Cons

The reason I dislike this messenger so much is because after you install it, it puts so much other crap on your computer you have to either uninstall or leave alone-- such as the yahoo links in internet explorer, yahoo toolbar, yahoo extra tools... it's not worth it. If you really want to use yahoo, just download trillian and set up a yahoo name on that.

"Best messenger ever"

August 09, 2005  |  By cheal_lin

 |  Version: Yahoo Messenger 6.0

Pros

I love this messenger, personally I think it's so much better than MSN , ICQ or AIM. It has so many features. You can listen to radio from the messenger, share photos, which is different from those display pictures in MSN, they are tooooo small, and yahoo's audibles, which is similar to MSN's winks but way better, MSN's winks are poorly designed and somewhat stupid. You can have so much fun from this messenger, I don't understand why MSN is so popular, I'm using it just because all the people I know are using it. Like MSN took over ICQ, I'm sure yahoo will take over MSN sometime soon. Oh, and one last thing,for those who really care about a program's user interface ( like me, I only use softwares that look pretty) don't let the screenshot intimidate you, there are two skins available which both are truely beautiful.

Cons

None

"One Of A Kind With A DownSide"

June 28, 2005  |  By Fuuf00

 |  Version: Yahoo Messenger 6.0

Pros

-Free messenger, how can it get any better than that?

-Customize avatars to a reasonable viewing size!

-The ability to use a microphone and download files from another user.

-A much more nicer lay-out than the older versions, easier for new users.

-Free e-mail account.

Cons

-Poor customer service: If you send yahoo! a topic concerning what is happening to you as a user, your more than likely to never recieve a response.

-The constant threat of hackers and illegal "bootings" make it rather annoying to be in chats when these programs are used and abused on chatters.

-Lack of updates made yahoo! vunerable to hackers and illegal software activity, such as a hacker being able to lock a user's account WITHOUT administrated position/authority.

-Ads displayed at the bottom of the chats can sometimes eat a screen-load of space.

-Some services will not allow a user to use their yahoo! e-mail account for stupid reasons.

-The easy ability for hackers to break into accounts by yahoo's! lack of security protection.
