The Yahoo messenger from the Yahoo site is really old, ugly and doesn't have many new features. Why not use something like kopete or gaim?

As far as I know, Gyach is the most functional(unless this changed...) yahoo client for Linux:

I know it's kind of pointless but what the hell...Click bleow to moan about Yahoo messengers lack of updates.
