"Supporting the Beta as it is now."

What happens if the developers produce a version of ePrompter as Yahoo Beta works at this moment in time and then two days later Yahoo make changes.

Will the users be satisfied if the developers produce a product that breaks right away? No, there will be more complaints wanting to know why ePrompter is not working. Well the reason is because it is Yahoo Beta = Not a finished product and subject to change.

ePrompter works with the standard Yahoo. I see no real advantage to switching to Yahoo Beta until it is the New Yahoo or what ever they decide to call it.

FYI, Beta testing of software means it's fairly stable for use but still has possible problems that need to be worked out and not ready for general use. Most bugs have been worked out during the Alpha testing phase. Alpha is software that has many problems and is worse than Beta software and is not ready for use as there could be major bugs in the software.

BTW, all it takes is one small change to break ePrompter with a web mail service. This is why when being prompted by Yahoo to try Yahoo Beta, ePrompter will stop working until you answer the prompt. Once that is cleared then ePrompter will start working again.
