In the world of web mail, Yahoo – with or without the superfluous exclamation point – has always been viewed as something of the black sheep of the family. Gmail is the cool older brother, while Hotmail/Live Mail was the sibling you were kind of forced into getting along with.
Having rather fallen by the wayside in recent years, Yahoo’s email service has undergone a makeover and there’s a brand new Windows 8 app to go along with it. And, believe it or not, it’s looking pretty good.
The ability to communicate with each other is one of those areas that got revolutionized in the past few decades. Looking past email, instant messaging, or IMing, was definitely one of those things that was cool when I was growing up.
But are the IM clients from the last era any relevant now? Today, I’d like to take a look at Yahoo messenger.
