YM forcing people to use Yahoo Search.
The new installer of Yahoo! Messenger now forces people to use Yahoo Search as its default search engine. Tsk, tsk, quite a sneaky move there, eh?
Note: This happens when I check the Custom install instead of the Typical install.
I just wanted to update to the latest version of YM and during installation, it prompted me an already “checked” checkbox for the search option. Tried to click on it to uncheck to no avail. Darn, that’s no glitch! That was intended. Why the hell would I revert to Yahoo Search from Google?
I can only uncheck it if I use the Typical install, of which by the way also forces users to install the Toolbar and Yahoo! extras. So I am forced to choose between the lesser of two evils. No way.
I pressed “Cancel” instead.
