Yahoo! Messenger 3.0 beta

Yahoo! Messenger 3.0 beta 2 has been released, adding a number of significant new features to the instant messaging application including tabbed IM windows. Now, when you have two or more conversations going on, they appear as separate tabs in a single window. Plus, you can drag a tab out and make it into its own window (or drag it back in to consolidate). The new release includes chat room support -- a feature previously unavailable in the Mac version of Yahoo! Messenger. Message archiving has also been added, allowing you to save conversations. In addition, there are new emoticons, bringing the Mac version up to par with other flavors of the program.

    I remember reading in the Beta1 documents the Mac Yahoo! Messenger team promised voice support in Beta2... and we get tabs? Yay tabs! Ugh.

    why bother?

    Still no audio? What is wrong with them?

    well duh!

    Voice support is harder than tabs. Just twist your balls in a knot and wait for beta3!

    Actually, does anyone still use Yahoo! anymore?
