Yahoo Messenger is a really good application for you to communicate with your friends & family although there’s already a lot of the same application such as msn messenger, skype, Aol and also Google Talk.

Do you know that you can embed your Yahoo Messenger widgets in your Gmail via the google labs widgets? Here’s a simple tutorial on how to get your Yahoo Messenger widgets in Gmail.

First, click on Google Labs Button in your Gmail account which is the green button. But, for anyone that still doesn’t know where Google Labs is in your Gmail account you can enable it. Go to Settings → Labs to enable the Google Labs Application. I know, not everyone know about this stuff before right? Just like me.
