  1. Has any one started to use google finance, and were do you think it will be in 5 yrs....would it be another Yahoo/msn/marketwatch/ etc etc..?
  2. It is terrible right now big embarrassment for such a rich company. I am sure it will eventually improve.
  3. I like it's "intellisense" symbol look up. There's no page refresh either when you hit a new timeframe. Definitely AJAX tricks so it doesn't feel like a typical html page. Good start.

    However I am disappointed by the lack of data. Ie. you can't download anything. It's just images at this point. Both Yahoo and MSN do that.
    And what with the Flash bit? Google w/ Flash, so unlike Google. Plus, I don't like Flash.

    So I like the look and usability. Don't like the functionality. Unfortunately I care more about the latter, therefore low marks overall.
  4. Ok Thanks guys, I was checking it out...Seems poor nothing out of this can get the same info anywhere.
    But hopefully it will improve with something new.
  5. that's what goog does the best.

    "Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful."

    what else do you expect?

    they dont do IPO's appearently, especially on the day of IPO. and their chart is kinda cool
