Though I haven't worked in Y! Finance for about a year and a half now, I've been a loyal Yahoo Finance user for at least six years now. And they just pushed an updated home page. The look and feel is a bit cleaner. The changes aren't massive, but it feels a bit less cluttered to me.

Good job, Finance team.

Having said that, I still believe that the better long term strategy for Y! Finance is to publish all those content modules and My Yahoo! modules and stop mantaining a Finance specific portal. But that's just me.

Oh, and RSS feeds too. But don't get me started on that dead horse.

A lot of hidden gems are hidden inside the menu that's a bit confusing. I love the industry browser ( but the way to get to it is first click on Stock Research (okay, that's decriptive, but isn't that what all the modules on yahoo finance fall under?), then Analyst Research (this one clearly out of place, as the industry list sorted in any manner you want does not have anything to do with analysts), and then Sector/Industry Analysis.

And if I am looking at MSFT for example and want to take a look at the whole industry (like to see how their P/E ratio compares to the industry averages), there's no clear way for me to jump straight to Software, have to go to the Industry Browser first and then search for MSFT there.

Lots of info, but many opportunities for cross-linking missed, which I suspect leads a lot of people to under-appreciate the powerful information repository that Yahoo Finance really is.

I maintain several portfolios on Yahoo Finance and use it as my home page. The new navigation scheme sucks as they took a one click operation and made it into two while navigating a pull down menu. Big step backwards in my opinion. I tried to find a place to write to them to complain and came up empty.

I have one portfolio on yahoo!finance and I can't understand that I can rarely scroll down to see what the stocks are doing. I do not have any trouble scrolling up or down on ANY OTHER website except Yahoo!Finance.
Any ideas? THANKS. TIA
