Yahoo Messenger beta 9.0
Publisher's description From Yahoo: Yahoo Messenger allows you to see when friends are online and you can send them instant messages. It can also alert you to new mail in your Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Personals account, or when you have an upcoming meeting recorded in Yahoo Calendar. Yahoo Messenger offers firewall support; a standby mode that minimizes the program until an Internet connection is made; the ability to save and print your conversations; and a tabbed interface that provides quick access to your favorite stocks, news, and sports scores.
Other features include the ability to create a chat room automatically, stock price alerts, the ability to send messages to friends even if they're not online when you are, a Quick Compact mode that hides the Messenger tools to maximize your viewing area, Messenger Themes, and the Online Presence, a small HTML button you can put on your Web site to allow your Yahoo buddies to instantly see if you are currently online, and voice chat, which allows you to talk for free to anybody else on the Internet. If you have a microphone and speakers, you can talk to other people on Yahoo with no long-distance charges.
The May 29, 2008 beta version of Yahoo Messenger 9.0 includes bug fixes and new features, including bigger emoticons, status message improvements, improved contact importing, and language support for Colombia, Chile, Peru, and Venezuela.
