The Latest New Look of Yahoo! Finance

Today in Opera, I can see a new look for the Yahoo! Finance front page (as usual changes have not propagated to the rest of the site and probably never will in Yahoo’s tradition of half-bakedness in updating interfaces). In IE/Firefox, I needed to click the link for the new font page.

The Good I do like the new interface, whose additions include Europe and Asia tabs in Market Summary, Portfolios are conveniently visible alongside recent quotes. There are CD rates visible alongside Mortgage rates and in general a lot more information has been squeezed into the same amount of space without making it feel cramped.

The Bad Attempting to customize the page leads to pages related to the old interface, streaming quotes still do not work in Opera (Yahoo! when will you use your own UI Library????)
