Usually I use yahoo messenger to chat when I have some free time to meet the people around the world and to come to know different cultures. But for the latest version of yahoo messenger I need to install directly from the web which is a bit difficult because of my net speed. Why some applications now a days designed to install directly from the web?

Anyway here my problem is I need to install the latest version of Yahoo messenger on more than one computer, for that I need to download twice or thrice depending number of computers I want to install. But it consumes more time as my net is slow, some times there is chance to get disconnected at that time I need to start from the beginning again. More over I need to use the data limit more than once for the same application which I don't want.

Is there any way to save my data limit and time by downloading such applications as stand alone for the purpose of reuse?

AFAIK there is no way to install YM offline. You could however use another messanger like Miranda which can connect to your existing YM account
