    Switched to a new macbook (which i LOVE) But Yahoo for OSX is a JOKE. Anybody have any suggestions for an alternative to the VAST network of chat rooms yahoo sports?

    Anything? Thanks!!

    That's one thing I missed since being a switcher. So I would like to know too.

    Some clients like Adium and Fire support it, but since Yahoo! removed all custom rooms and left only the default ones, it seems to be broken now. Someone asked me about that a few month ago, so I would like to know too.

    I like Adium as well but for yahoo chat rooms its not that great. It does not give you a list of the chat rooms. I guess thats not that bad seeing as most people dont use close to all of them. So if you have your few that you do enter, write them down or just remember there names and it will work fine for you.

    Bakarland: Chatroom alternative

    Lot many chat users disappointed with yahoo as they closed chatrooms.

    Well as of now , there is another option Bakarland.
    Its recently launched in public. Having decent liquid layout, which makes easy to have multiple window chats.
    Hope it may be useful.
