Microsoft Releases Messenger 5.0 for Mac
Tuesday August 9, 2005

Microsoft has released Messenger 5.0, the latest version of the company's instant messaging software for Mac OS X. Messenger for Mac 5.0 introduces tabbed viewing allowing users to simultaneously access corporate and personal Messenger accounts and set a unique user status on each.

"The latest version of Messenger for Mac is ideal for both office and personal communication," said Scott Erickson, director of product management and marketing for the Mac BU at Microsoft. "Our customers told us they needed a business tool to enable corporate messaging, so these requests were a primary driver in the development of the new version. Messenger for Mac 5.0 allows for greater collaboration in corporate environments and yet still presents a fun way to chat with friends and family."

Microsoft Messenger for Mac 5.0 is available for download in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and Swedish.

how is it that Microsoft can figure out how to add tabs to Messenger but they can't figure out how to add them to Internet Explorer?

What's even funnier: Why do Microsoft products always look better on a Mac? Wink
