    MS Messenger Version 5 for Macs released

    [​IMG]

    It's akin to giving you a hammer to hit yourself over the head with, but ever-lovin' Microsoft just released MS Messenger 5 for the Mac platform, but what the hey. You're all mostly adults here anyway, right?

    Looks like a facelift, mostly, even if they claim it's a whole new design, but it's nothing like iChat.

    Get it, if you dare, here.

    (Thanks to Adrianna of Popagandhi for the link!)

    Hi, but this has actually been posted earlier today, a merge might be in order.

    Whoops! Sorry, I didn't see it. :broken:

    I actually looked into the Heads-Up & Others forum and when I saw it wasn't there, posted it up. Didn't realize it was in the iApps forum. And it was pushed out of the Latest Posts page already by the time I logged on. Sowee again!

    Underscores the need to use the Search function once more.

    polar mac, i updated mine and it spotted my old msn messenger and replaced it... it did take a while though. i thought it crashed, but left it for a bit... when i got back to the computer, it said it had spotted my old version of messenger. after installing, i checked my hd and found that the old version was gone already...

    A friend from France introduced me to a Mercury Messenger, a chat app that works with msn. Quite cool actually 'coz you instead of buzzing (in Yahoo), you can do a "nudge" where your chatmate's window will shake to get their attention. You can do tabbed chatting, draw a doodle, play games with your chatmate like Tic Tac Toe, and has a webcam feature as well.

    More on this by visiting: http://www.mercury.to/
