New Yahoo IM for Mac

They’ve just released the new Y! messenger for Mac. It’s about time since the last version didn’t offer anything that Adium didn’t. I still think adium is good for its multi-service ability and style. Still, I like the new Y! IM because it looks nice, webcam works (although voice is lacking which is a shame). I would use adium but I only use yahoo with adium anyway so there isn’t that much difference, and when you use yahoo rather than adium you do get things such as file transfer and the essential Buzz button.

The new version is so much more stylish than the last and has a really nice “Mac” feel.

Rating: 7/10 – No voice is not that great and obviously missing the multi-account feature of adium is a downer. Other than that it looks good.
