Yahoo Messenger 9

Finally, the final version of Yahoo Messenger 9 is out. There hasn't been too much publication in the last three months and suddenly, it just came out like that. What's nice in this major version is that it supports for Indonesian language as well (i am not sure whether YM 8.x has it or not).

By the way, YM 9 may bring bad news for Vista users, since some features are not available on Vista (and MAC users). Check the feature list for more detailed information. It's just a matter of time before those features are adopted in Vista and Mac, but for now, XP users will be pleased to see that they could get the best of YM 9.

One cool thing about YM 9 is that they add several new emoticons (like , and ) and also they had Star Wars edition of Web Messenger


  1. If you're indonesian you can direct download the main installer from, if you connected to IIX, quite faster.

  2. Thanks, i have download it before you told me about the download mirrors. I hope this link will help others who haven't download it yet

  3. too bad it still doens't support tabbed IM windows on all platforms which is, imho, an essential feature of an IM software

  4. Yeah, but that's not so critical i guess. It's just a trend that most browsers has done. IM application is not the same as browser, but it's a good idea though
