I just downloaded it and couldn't stop myself for posting about this new version here.
First off all after installing it you will notice a better changed GUI (You have options to use the classic)
The feature i love most is "Create your own Yahoo! Avatar"
Click here to know more about Yahoo! Avatars with screenshots.
Your friends can see your avatar in their Messenger Friends Lists and in the IM window when you chat with them.
See how it looks like:
Other cool feature is "Stealth Settings" for making yourself appear online to some and offline to others on your Messenger list.
All New Features in Yahoo Messenger 6 are:
- LAUNCHcast Radio
