Yahoo! Messenger allows you to quickly exchange messages with your online friends. Unlike e-mail, instant messages appear as soon they're sent. By downloading the application to your computer, you can send instant messages. Other features include voice chat, file transfer, mail and stock quote alerts, sports scores, news, and much more.
The reason for using a standalone installer is you don't have to be connected online and get the installer files at yahoo server, when your installation has been corrupted and needs reinstalling you wont have to go to yahoo again and download a small file and run through the long install process again. You just click the already downloaded full installer even offline to get the work done.
