Google Finance

Very slick. Love the jump over Yahoo on a few of the features like news events integrated into the charts and the whole page layout.

It will be interesting to see the traction it gets as this is one of Yahoo's dominant areas. Most news stuff still links to yahoo quotes.

This is one piece of the long war over eyeballs that Google has declared. Ambitious for sure.

Comments:
yeah, the functionality with the Google Finance charts are great. I like the way you can move the cursor back and forth in the intraday chart to see the quote almost minute by minute.

Very interesting to see the prominence they've chosen to give to blogs, too. that's better than having to link to a finance chatroom to see what people are saying, and will probably encourage more blogging on companies. Google have a blog play, of course.
