If I was, I could fall back to an old version of Yahoo Instant Messenger. I have the old version. At one time, I felt that I'd always wanted to keep what I was installing locally. Remember my winrot experience. But, now neither YIM version installs.
Reported earlier, LinkedIn changed their UI which disrupted my modus operendi.
It just seems that I keep losing control.
That loss of control wastes my time. Which is the most critical resource to me.
So officially declare me "not a fan of web based apps"!
