Google Finance and Yahoo Finance are two web services I have used daily since the early days of the Internet.
I have used Yahoo Finance since it first launched in January 1997.
But after Google Finance launched in 2006, I started using Google Finance more and eventually, it became my default finance site on the web.
Sometime in the last month or two, I can’t remember exactly when, Google revamped Google Finance.
The UI is cleaner and the service is much simpler.
But a lot of the power user features I had come to rely on in my daily work are either gone or buried so deeply that I can’t find them.
I also find it hard to search for a price quote now, which is kind of the most basic feature one would want in a service like this.
Anyway, I have switched a lot of my usage back to Yahoo Finance as a result.
But I am hoping that Google realizes that they messed some stuff up in the revamp and are working on fixing it.
Because I do prefer Google Finance. At least I did.
