As a Google user, it always bugged me to have to go to other websites to get stock quotes. Now we get a direct feed of market data, so all you have to do is type in a ticker symbol like INDU or SUNW and the search results will include the latest exchange and real-time ECN quote, intraday chart, volume and market cap. And if you're on the go, these quotes are also available on Google SMS. Just send a text message to 46645 ('GOOGL') with the ticker and you'll quickly see the latest market data.
There's a lot of stock info we don't provide, which is why we link to financial sites like Yahoo Finance and Motley Fool. We know people have firm opinions about stock information, so tell us what you think of it -- and how it could be better.
