Gone are the pre-Web 2.0 days of Yahoo! Chat and welcome to the arrival of the successor, known as Yahoo! Messenger. Back in the day, it was ICQ that lead the IM craze and today Microsoft rules that roost with MSN Messenger, but Yahoo! has added a lot of interesting features to its instant messenger contender, one of which we liked a lot: Yahoo's Cam-to-Cam video chat feature (pictured here).

The client looks pretty good, but we found it slow to say the least. The layout is clean and organized and easy to get around in.

The messenger also features voice mail which is pretty cool. When you're not around, friends can leave you messages so you can get back to them.. though not a viable replacement for real voicemail, but it does actually support leaving voice messages for retrieval on certain types of smartphone.

Like all real messenger clients, Yahoo! messenger also supports filesharing, so sending music or pictures to your family in Europe or Asia is as easy as a few mouse clicks.

Everything we tested on Yahoo! messenger was free, so no reason not to give it a try.
