Other new features include tabbed windows, access to chat rooms, multiway conferencing, message archiving, webcam support, file transfers, and the ever-popular "more emoticons."

The version 3 (release 3) beta supports PowerPC and Intel Macs, and is a 16.9 MB download. The Yahoo! Messenger blog post announcing the beta has more info.
