Editors' Review

You'll get the most out of MSN Messenger if you're already a member of MSN or have signed up for its free services. Otherwise, there are better chat clients. MSN requires that you create an account with its own Hotmail (or Passport) program to install the messenger client, and entering your demographic information is not optional. You get a standard chat experience, both one-to-one and multiuser, and extra services such as NetMeeting, which is awkwardly focused on the kinds of remote-conferencing tasks handled through standard VPNs these days. One seemingly attractive feature, Browse the Web Together, turns out to be a feature of MSN 8, not the messenger itself. Prominent tabs for MSN's online services, such as Expedia and MSNBC, are here as expected, and you can sign up for each service to customize the content.
