    November 13, 2005  |   By RRobinson

    Version: Yahoo Messenger 7.0

    Pros

    I have been Yaahoooing for years and the just keep on getting better. And are aways first to bring out new features like the Void with video, The little expressers (mini pictures with voice expression. Besides me talking all the time on the messenger I listen to music willst I compose me emails and every now and the blink at my calender to see if I forgot a appointment or things to do. Genieal mini office is my Yaahoo messenger. (BTW when someone calls me my messenger do not ring old telephone bells but Sings for me YaaaaHhhooooo oh.

    Cons

    It seams all the bells and whistle can slightly slow your system a pinch.

    "Resource hog"

    October 24, 2005  |   By electricblue33

    Version: Yahoo Messenger 7.0

    Cons

    When Yahoo messenger 7 is running my computer crawls and I can't do anything else. With version 6 I used to stay connected all the time, now I can't anymore. I schedule with my friends at what time we meet to chat, and the rest of the time I don't open it. Where can I download version 6?

    "Good but fix launchcast!"

    October 24, 2005  |   By MikeURL

    Version: Yahoo Messenger 7.0

    Pros

    I like the wide range of emoticons. I am a total emoticon junky. I like the fact that Yahoo's servers will accept offline messages and send them when I go online. I like the integration with my Yahoo Calendar, stocks, and Yahoo 360.

    Cons

    I have had ongoing issues with Launchcast. Ever since v.6 launchcast has crashed over and over and over. I really do enjoy Launchcast (so much so that I am a paid user) and I just wish they could make it stable. Emails to their tech support are answered by untrained monkeys who bash the keyboard with produce before they hit "send". Also, every time I get an email the messenger signs off and then back on.

    "Cant download!"

    October 9, 2005  |   By Thybag

    Version: Yahoo Messenger 7.0

    Cons

    I find myself completely unable to download the new yahoo, since now rather than just downloading yahoo have decided to make people download a program, which the downloads and installs the real program.

    Which Annoyingly refuse’s to work threw a firewall built in to my router.

    And what annoys me more is that they don’t even provide an alternative download for uses in my position.

    Why cant they just use a normal installer :(

    "YAHOO MESSENGER V6.0 WAS MUCH BETTER THAN V7.0!!!"

    October 2, 2005  |   By YARTES

    Version: Yahoo Messenger 7.0

    Pros

    The only advantage of the version 7.0 over 6.0 is the capacity to leave a voice message to any user offline. You could do it by text in the version 6.0 anyway. MSN does not have this incredible feature!

    Cons

    The sound quality in voice chat of Yahoo Msg. v7.0 is terrible!, it devores all your bandwidth!, Yahoo v6.0 had the same feature voice chat, it was much simple, friendly and easier to use. As usual, they add a new feature, but they screwed up the voice chat feature!!!. I need to go back to the v6.0 but I do not where to get it...:-(. WARNING: whoever still has v6.0, stay with it!, you do not gain anything (you lose) by installing V7.0.
