Yahoo! Browser IM – just released

Yahoo! Browser IM

Yahoo! has just released a Browser IM which is an Instant messenger on your web browser. With Yahoo! Browser IM, you no longer have to download a stand alone IM software to your computer.

By dispensing with the need to install and run a separate IM program, Yahoo is looking to reach out to tens of millions of consumers around the world who use the Web in Internet cafes instead of on personal computers at work or at home.

The move also appeals to travelers, business professionals on the go and office workers whose companies block IM software downloads on their internal networks for security reasons.

It is said to be compatible with IE 7, Firefox, Safari and Opera browsers.
