Advantages: Its the best, Except no substitute
Disadvantages: Microphones never work there
Yahoo is by far the bet browser on the Internet today. Trust me iv seen them all and this one is the business. Its set out superbly with an information packed front page. The soothing aqua blue is a reliable sign that things are going to be done.
The search engine facility is the most intelligent on the net allowing you to put in a series of words all at the same time. If you put in a plus sign it will gather up that request just as quick.
It has website and page splitters where it will search for either on your request.
The e-mail account set up needs work though, as you have to scroll to read your mail. But with 3mb off mail box space it’s unrivalled. It has numerous extras including spellchecker and some good edit extras. You can personalize your front page like other browsers but this has more options to its best rivals in Excite and AOL rivals.
69 percent of hits and searches on the www are of a pornographic nature. If you go to Yahoo clubs and tap in what you need boy will you get it.
The chat section is the best to out there with nice little pop up info boxes when you we want to check out someone to chat with. Theres a unique photo space where you can download your mug shot. Or pretend to be someone else if you’re that way inclined.
I have searched the net for decent chat rooms and yahoo is definitely the best. You can chat with your mates here with a mic from all around the globe. Just buy a cheap PC world joby. Instead of paying 50p a minute international rate, it’s free here.
For the more keen chatters who like to keep in touch with their fellow webbies, yahoo have a free messenger. These allow you to speak without going into chat when they highlight who’s online. They also have webcam connections for yours and theirs as well as various chat rooms.
If you press user rooms you will be invited into a secret world of perverted and more sinister rooms in the ultimate free speech topics.
>Every night on US chat they have celebrity chats and meet the stars type forums. Last night you could talk with the Israeli prime minister, or at least put a question to him.I actually put one to Bruce Willis three months back.It wasn’t complementary.
Yahoos friends and personal pages are a let down as they are geared towards Americans There are Yahoo front pages for lots of different countries but the personal are still American.
Yahoo auctions are again a little Americana and you have to dig in deep to find deals this side of the Atlantic.Unless you want a Buffalo Bills beer cooler steer clear.
The front page has all the breaking news and sport with up to the date scores and financial stuff. You can personalize the browser at home to give you tick a tape rolling share prices or latest weather casts.Oh and when you are logged into messenger theres pop ups to tell you if you have mail or if fellow chatters are online.
I like their fantasy football that is running at the moment. It’s way more sophisticated than the Daily Star I can tell you. Its free to like most of the extras with competitions a plenty. Geosites to are fun which are simply you web space if you want to set up a personal page.
It can give you all the gig space you need and you can help a plenty to build your site. Its extensive image and audio library is excellent to.
Theres all the things you would expect from a yellow pages which are listed neatly on this very versatile web browser. Everyone knows this is the one and there for you get the best info and anyone who matters is on yahoo.
