Default Messenger : Yahoo or MSN..?

hi guys, just thought i would post this thread to find out how many of us use which one and why (ease of use, simpler, etc.)....

so, it would be great if all of you would chip in, and quote which one you use, along with your i.d's (yahoo or MSN)....

i think it would help, if all of us knew each other's i.d's, so maybe we could chat simultaneously while browsing Tbhp...

I have both, although i don't use them- i do not chat much; Tbhp is what i use 99 % of my net for..

my yahoo i.d - menonatul
my MSN i.d - menonatul@yahoo.co.in

I use both MSN and Yahoo but recently I tried out Google talk which is very easy to use and simple.

I have Yahoo & MSN installed but use only MSN mainly because of its customization ability & secondly because all contacts are there.
my id : adya3AThotmailDOTcom

i am recently using Google Talk, bare bone IM still in beta but found out that audio quality with dial up is better than Skype

I am using MSN.
But for some reason MSN messenger is not working on my computer because of some firewall problem.
It happens even if the firewall is switched off.
Anyone know why?

Hi All,

MSN all the way (shaliniamit@hotmail.com) - No prizes for guessing who Shalini is . Usually logged-in during office hours - feel free to add me to your contacts.

For voice, I use skype (amit.seth) for both Business and personal use - a must-have if your ISD bills are scaling the roof.

Cheers

I use Yahoo!.. my id is: priyankluthra[at]yahoo[dot]co[dot]in

P.S. I request all the members not to type @ with their addresses. Instead use [at]. There are some automated programs which automatically detect email adresses in forums such as this and then use them for spamming.

I would prefer to use google messenger, but of the two mentioned its yahoo. I dont really trust msn portals with my info and stuff. It may have more features, but most of my online communication is on irc/livejournal/blogger etc., so couldnt care less

I use both, but certainly prefer Yahoo. Many times MSN makes my PC hang - sucks big time! You can't even leave offline messages on it. Infact the only reason I use MSN is because most of my friends and family members use it.
