Another good thing is the you can now see the chart in OHLC or in Candlestick pattern, earlier only line charts are available. You can change the chart pattern using the Settings link at the end of the chart. The chart interval also changed, earlier they used to display 1day, 3day, 5day, daily and weekly intervals. Now the charts will show 2min, 5min, 30min, daily and weekly. 30min charts are quite useful, Yahoo Finance wonâ€

Company news, information, discussions everything is accommodated in to the chart page, this looks like more cluttered but the information is quite useful if you are following live markets.
The changes introduced are very significant and are quite useful. But there are some glitches which needs to be addressed, like Firefox freezes for few secs if you refresh the page or add a new technical indicator. The charts are small, particularly when using candlestick pattern the chart looks cluttered. A better option would be to give a fullscreen view of the chart.
