What IM clients are good for Yahoo Chat?


What are the best clients for going on the yahoo chat rooms, I tried Gaim and it worked okay, what are people`s favourites for going on the rooms? Is gaim the only one?

depending on whether you're using gnome or KDE: gaim and kopete are the best, although I stopped using yahoo because of all the spam, so I'm not really sure I'm the best source.

...just a quick question: How did you get into Yahoo Chat?
or do you mean Yahoo messenger. That is all I could do with Gaim.

I thought you needed Java installed on your browser to get into the
actual Yahoo Chat rooms...??

Yes, you can use gaim to get into the rooms, on the menu there is some selection or other, list rooms I think it is, they list the rooms then you can join like that, it works pretty well.
