Yahoo as a search engine -- forget it
BUT Yahoo finance is still the greatest FREE site for all stock market stuff.
While this might only be of academic interest to a lot of people on the Windows 7 site YAHOO is still a great source of data for example EOD (End of day) stock data, real time quotes and OPTIONS.
I'm sure I'm not the only person on this site who has done some market trading
For example I like OPTIONS trading say looking for a PUT on PCX expiring this Friday. Pic enclosed.
I'm not even going to attempt to start teaching people on this site on how to do Options trading but suffice to say YAHOO is one of the best FREE sources of financial imformation available ANYWHERE.
Don't forget also that they have a great facility for downloading Stock prices in any way you want via a decent API into an EXCEL spreadsheet too. Nobody else even comes close. http://www.gummy-stuff.org/Yahoo-data.htm
As a competitor to Google I agree its days are numbered but there's lots of life left in "The Old Dog" yet.
