Yahoo Messenger 10 is still in beta, but early reviews of the messenging client giveÂ a lot of promise. YM 10 has really focused on the social networking aspects of the messaging client. There is heavy emphasis on the phone and the video features. YM 10 figures to be a major competitor to Skype, which eBay, the parent company, just recently partly sold to investors.
Acceptance of YM 10 will depend on how slick the interface is to potential users. YM 10 may have to yank Skype users away to make a slice of the market. Based on history, YM has had a good record of creating excellent graphic interfaces. There’s still a lot of work still to be done, but if you’re interested in testing the latest, you can download it from here.
