You can get it here:

The current version is 9.0 so I guess you are very out of date.
cheers,

No, but according to Yahoo messenger you don't need to download anything.
Quote:
No download required to IM with friends
Just sign in from your browser to IM with your Yahoo! and Windows Live Messenger™ friends
Maybe it wasn't web-based in the old days.
cheers,
