The new version of Yahoo! Messenger is out, and they made sure it was much cooler than the previous one. It seems completely revamped, and a “friend-happy” look! But they still have their irritating method of making users download the messenger, first you have to download a ~400kb downloader, then use it to download a temporary installer. You cant even redistribute, backup, reuse it! So every time you need to reinstall messenger spend time downloading it again.
Well, not anymore, here are the direct download links for the latest Yahoo! Messenger
