Is Yahoo the new AOL?

"When you install or download a Yahoo program you are given the option to include several ‘features’ things like a tool bar for internet explorer, links added to your desktop, your bookmarks to other Yahoo portals and services. Some users are complaining that even after opting out of these extras, Yahoo changed their default searching function."

This brings back memories...  I have been a victim of this as well.  After installing the new Y! Messenger, I had icons for Yahoo mail, toolbars, etc., even after choosing NOT to install them.  The good news is that they are hurting Internet Explorer's customer base, since many of these "features" do not work on Firefox and Opera.
