Yahoo finally launched a web-based version of Yahoo Messenger, allowing the users to communicate with their friends straight from an online page. The product is actually quite amazing,
providing an impressive interface bundled with almost perfect functionality. The web-based Yahoo Messenger is probably the most powerful rival for the famous Meebo or other similar services like Ebuddy. As far I can see, the way this new version works is quite impressive, the messages are sent extremely quickly, just like the downloadable application. Yahoo Web Messenger is based on Flash 9 and is compatible with any Yahoo ID or Live Messenger contacts.
Basically, the Yahoo Web Messenger is compatible with most of the popular browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari. All you need is to install Flash 9, the Adobe product being available for free for all the users. The main difference between the web-based version and the downloadable application is that you're not required to install anything as it can be accessed from a simple online interface.
Some time ago, Yahoo announced its plans to introduce a web-based messenger into Yahoo Mail, the mail solution provided by the company. However, the giant portal released this version of the Yahoo Messenger, probably the same release as the one meant to be implemented into the mail service. Until this new product, Yahoo already owned a web version of the instant messaging client, but it was quite buggy and provided only a simple way to communicate on the Internet.
