Yahoo Inc. launched a new personal finance portal today as a part of Yahoo! Finance. Yahoo has gotten into the bad habit of launching new interfaces as part of old sites that are not completely integrated. The personal finance portal is much better in that respect as compared to the half-assed effort by Yahoo! Movies to change it’s layout. Only the Front Page made the cut for change in Yahoo! Movies as compared to most of the Personal Finance section.
Anyway, it is a nice move from Yahoo! to have a separate section for personal finance instead of having it mixed in with everything else. Yahoo! Finance is a site I visit everyday and Google Finance or any of the other finance sites have not provided anything in the way of breaking that habit. So go Yahoo! Finance – and please update the appearance of the rest of the site too.
