    Yahoo launched a makeover of its popular instant-messaging software, just days after similar moves by rivals America Online and Microsoft.

    Called "The All New Yahoo Messenger," the upgrade is one of the software's most dramatic makeovers to date. Cosmetically, the service will have a new look and feel that focuses more on graphics and animation, the company said. The service also has folded in features pulled from other areas of Yahoo's Web site, such as photo sharing, the address book, user-to-user video games, Internet radio from its Launch subsidiary, and online search results. "Yahoo Messenger is a hub for communications services," Lisa Pollock Mann, Yahoo Messenger's senior director, said in an interview Friday. "It's important that those services are core and relevant."



    The software looks similar to MSN Messenger in its ability to display digital photos or play a round of checkers in the messenger chat window, for instance. However, Yahoo added the option of displaying avatars, which are cartoon images that people can customize with different appearances, outfits and backgrounds to reflect their moods. Avatars have been popular in Asia, but have yet to gain broad adoption in the United States. Yahoo Messenger also expanded familiar perks. The company increased its arsenal of animated "smiley" emoticons, adding 13 new faces to its existing 35 choices. The service also still offers PC voice calling, PC-to-mobile phone text messaging, a Web cam and news updates

    If you link to legal programs or mp3&#39;s, link to the official website containing information about the file as our mod team cannot control the content of every link. If you are an artist you are allowed to link directly to your art if your art is hosted on your own server or domain name.

    seems you missed the bit, or choose to ignore it

    STFU Everybodys equal here. I my self see no problem posting the direct link and its not against the rules. If it was, the mods would have taken them off.

    Relax guys&#33; I believe a direct download from famous sites like yahoo is allowed. If it was hosted on a diff. server then it wont be.


    @newcster68,
    The new version looks pretty awesome&#33; Although I use trillian but I downloaded it just for the kicks. Interface rocks&#33;

    Thankyou everybody&#33; I can understand the "No Direct Download" links when it comes to illegal software or sites that promote them, but this is a legal site that promotes legal software. I was just trying to help out that&#39;s all...
