It would have been easier and quicker for Yahoo to co operate with Apple way before than Google, as Yahoo has valuable designers and services are intuitive and unified all over what they acquire. But when it comes to Mac, here comes the problems: -slow application, -Cpu hungry -when disconnected/connected HUD appears all the time, -no file transfer on msn users, -nor avatars, -sometimes I write to yahoo users and they also don't get the messages as well. -Big MSN incompatibility warning shows up ahead every time message session begins. -No Multilanguage support: I even proposed to translate it, can't care less. World is flat and starts from NYC and ends to LA as usual. -No video Multi chat support like iChat. -no screensharing -no avatar drag and drop (must go to preferences) -no multi avatar window pops up That's all for now folks.

I'm never sure if it's that Yahoo doesn't give a crap about Mac Users... or if they just hire idiots to do their Tech stuff.

This app is awful. No Real Preferences, Can't Close a single Conversation without closing the entire App, Badly Designed, No Features, Counterintuitive... just plain garbage in every way I can think of.

The old Version was fine, except that it hadn't been Updated in a few Millennia. In fact, it was much better than Skype in a lot of ways.

C'mon Yahoo, hire someone out of Grammar School to Design this!

How about a nice Command>W to close a Single Chat. That can't be that hard.

It is pretty: it requires a PPC machine, and also 10.9 or later. Yahoo, this is impossible. :)

Yahoo has officially dropped support for anything using 10.9 and above. They give a weird corporate doublespeak answer at https://help.yahoo.com/kb/messenger/SLN24720.html that of course, doesn't really tell us anything. If Yahoo! can't keep an important product like Messenger up-to-date, it does not bode well for the future of the once mighty Internet giant.
