Yahoo! IM, now a web application

Yahoo yesterday launched a web-based version of its instant messaging service that lets people use Yahoo Messenger on any browser and any Internet-connected computer rather than having to download it to a hard drive.

The Web version of the chat application adds some new functions to the downloaded version, says CNet, such as the ability “to search current and archived messages from any computer. It also lets users maintain multiple conversations in one window with different tabs instead of opening up chats in multiple windows.”

With Google Talk recently gone web-based, as well as the Gizmo Project, and Y! IM following the track, we’re just waiting for such a move from Windows Live Messenger and Skype.
