Yahoo! Launches Browser Version of Messenger

Yahoo! Web Messenger is designed to complement Yahoo! Messenger on your desktop. Basically Yahoo! Messenger can handle the basics: your Messenger List and real-time online conversations. Adding contacts and adjusting your status. Even saving and searching your past messages.

In the web version of Messenger, your image/avatar is on display, and your stealth settings and block list are also in effect. But you can’t modify these things. To make those adjustments, use the application (the ‘client’) that’s installed on your computer.

Yahoo! Web Messenger is built on Flash 9. At launch it will include only basic functionality, and is integrated with MSN Messenger (you can add Live/MSN Messenger contacts to your Yahoo friends list). Users can also add avatars and emoticons are supported. Yahoo says VOIP functionality may be added later.
