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?

Thumbs down

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

Had about 928 sigs so not exactly a big issue.
