Editors' Review

+

Get social over the long-established, well-rounded chat and VoIP client Yahoo Messenger and you'll find drag-and-drop capabilities and contact importing from friends other IM, e-mail, and social-networking accounts who are also on Yahoo chat. Another favorite trick is the ability to see images and videos displayed inside the chat window when you or a pal drops in a public URL.

Yahoo Messenger 10 adds some visual enhancements that call out VoIP and video chats on the conversation window. Tweaks in the buddy list showcase an updates tab that operates as a newsfeed for friends' status messages. Other visual refreshes to version 10 spruce up select icons.

Users should note that the download stub will finish installing the program online, and that the download bundles the Yahoo Toolbar. In the preinstallation window, click over to Custom Install to deselect add-ons you don't want. We could also live without the heavy-handed Yahoo branding, and it would be nice to see a link to hidden smileys in the emoticon drop-down, but these are minor niggles when weighed against the benefits of an easy-to-use, feature-rich chat client that only continues to improve.

"Disgusted to no limit"

February 26, 2012  |  By sshahpari89

 |  Version: Yahoo Messenger 11.5.0.155

Pros

Nothing! Honestly, I am not being bitter for you guys not being able to deliver my messages across the world at the most crucial times, or the fact that your video chat is hopelessly terrible or that there are no options to save or look back on old conversations... No, it's that you guys are missing the most standard features! how is it that yahoo still exists! I swear on my life, MONKEYS could have thought of these ridiculously simple features! You have regressed yahoo in every aspect of your business! PLEASE GO KILL YOURSELVES!

Cons

It's yahoo... enough said!

Summary

I am disgusted with everything yahoo has had to offer these past few year, but your yahoo messenger is just the cherry on top of all of your other sh*tty products!!! I really had to hold back on this review. Please go stick shotguns in your mouth and pull the trigger with your toes. You are good for nothing!
