    No screenshot however if you are from Japan i'm not sure you can install the soft because it comes with an internet connection...So you may find someone that subscribe for you to get the prmiuml webbased services but i'm not sure you'll be able to use the soft.Anyway you will not pay an internet vnnection for nothing !!!!

    I dont have any screenshots but te demo link i posted is very very complete. It's a really nice demo. Otherwise there is a screenshot at this following link. I posted the same message on Neowin.

    That looks nice. Much better IMHO than MSN.

    Some of the features below:

    SBC Yahoo! has released an updated version of the browser that offers increased performance and new features such as:

    Popup blocker - stop popup windows
    Customizable Sidebar
    Better user interface
    Easier to use

    But I don't think it is available to Japan like you said.

    Based on IE. Bah. So remember to get all your daily Windows Updates if you use it. =)

    i certainly remember that with Gecko based browser you cannot play any online radio nor can you compose in the HTML mode of web based browser.....or even Opera's M2 mail client cannot accept HTML composing......how useless this composer might be....no i dont see any better browser than ie....When Mozilla will accept Microsft HTML then i'll adopt it....however i understand that this is precisely Microsoft fault....i'm using MSN Premium and i'll switch to Yahoo Plus browser when the offer will be launch next month because they have a browser too
