Apparently this is the big news today. Check out Google Finance for yourself. More evolutionary than revolutionary, but as always competition is good, and will lead to more improvements for all finance sites. Yay AJAX.

  1. Wow. Glaring improvements over Yahoo Finance include the ability to get a stock quote without actually doing a separate search for the company ticker (try searching apple, instead of AAPL) and an interactive chart complete with flags that indicate when news was released and how it might have affected stock price. Very cool.

  2. Yah, the AJAX is great, but I think the most useful thing I see here is the correlation of when news happened to the stock price. The related companies is also kinda nice so you can keep an eye on their competition.

    Still has some bugs in it though. A company I hold stock in recently changed its stock ticker symbol, and a search against the new symbol returns a completely different company.

  3. Is it just me or are the fancy stuff not working in Firefox anymore? I’m on v1.0.7.

  4. Also I couldn’t find a dividend or yield info anywhere, which I consider a must.

  5. NinjaPigeon: How about upgrading to firefox 1.5? You’re on an old version.

  6. I actually didn’t post that comment, but now that you mention it, I’m on the same version as Jonathan. Personally, I hate upgrading things that aren’t broken, though I will do any upgrades that come up through the notifications. For some reason, firefox isn’t telling me to update yet even though it did at work over a month ago.

  7. Hopefully Google Finance will light a fire under their (Yahoo’s) butts to redesign Yahoo Finance. It’s just too difficult to find all the amazing info on Yahoo’s site.
