I love Messenger, it is an important part of my life and has been for over seven years. There are a few things that I dislike about it, but the one that keeps coming back is this: if I don’t close each conversation window individually then that conversation doesn’t get added to the History. If I restart my computer and have 8 conversation windows open, then none of those conversations will be saved. Whenever Messenger crashes, as it does from time-to-time, I lose all of my precious conversation history.
Microsoft / MSN / Windows Live / Whoever: please change Messenger so that the conversation history is updated in realtime. While you are there, please make the history browser better – make it look more like the conversation window.
My main request, the thing I want the most, is to not lose my data all the time.
