Yahoo is working on a beta version of Yahoo Messenger that tried to bring new Yahoo Messenger on desktop application. So far, the new features that are written on the site are:
- New Look
- New Emoticons
- New Skins
- Usage of Flickr to swap photos
I guess it's more than that. It's just a matter of time before they publish the new features list For now, check the video first.
The bad thing is that they didn't make an effort to update the Unix version of Yahoo Messenger. People have preferred Pidgin or Kopete rather than using old-fashioned Unix version of Yahoo Messenger
