for the search giant, consumers had quite an unexpected reaction following this improvement. Google proudly announced on the official Google Finance Blog
that the service had received a new interface which would make using the amazing feature their product provides easier than anytime before. In addition to that, Google has also rolled out Google Finance China, a special flavor of the web service that provides information for the Asian market.

Now, read the scraps in bold and have a look at the following messages posted on the official Google Finance Blog:
"The new interface stinks. Too much stuff crammed on one page. Is there any way to personalize the Finance to allow a user to limit some of the superfluous stuff?

"Put it back the way it was....the new one is too hard to find what was easy to find before

"The best feature of your old site was the graphical interface. I get most of the news from other sources. Now the page looks really disjointed and your best feature, the graphs, have been sacrificed. Please return to the old version or allow users to customize the page.

"Horrible, horrible new look. How ungoogly! If I wanted to get financial information that looks like someone puked all over a page, I'd go to Yahoo or Marketwatch!
