A Beta version of YM 9 was released.. Currently, Ive tried it out and here are few comments.
Let's start with a simple comment. First thing I noticed was when you paste an image link on a PM window, it automatically generates a thumbnail image. That was a good start, then there were admirable themes and new emoticons [smilies]. Another plus was the bar on top of your friends list. If you input a contact name or ID, it will search your list for any corresponding matches.
Then comes the bad side. I noticed it lagged like hell, it takes me a few seconds to receive messages. Then there's a buzz limitation, yes I admit that I use buzz too much and I enjoy it *The Buzz* LoL. But The new YM has a 1 minute buzz limitation. Most YM users expect a lot out of this new release, this was a great let down.
The new YM sucks like hell but its still on Open Beta so there's great time for them to improve it.
He who can't lie doesn't know what the truth is.
