How to Use Yahoo Messenger Without Downloading It

Save

Unlike traditional chat programs that required you to download and install a program, Yahoo Messenger for the Web is a service that allows you to chat with your Yahoo and Windows Live friends from any browser. This application can be especially useful if you use a computer that is protected by a firewall or a proxy server.

  • Sign up for an account with Yahoo Messenger.

  • Use your Yahoo user name and password to log into the chat application at http://webmessenger.yahoo.com/.

  • Your friends list will be automatically available when you log on, so you should be ready to chat immediately.
