No JS, just Flash[edit]

Unlike the other google web apps, google finance uses Macromedia Flash technology, it's wrong to state its based in javascript. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 62.1.219.32 (talkcontribs) .

it does use both. (rest of comment removed due to uncivil nature, see WP:CIV for more information. See [1] for full comment.)—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.76.98.188 (talkcontribs) .
Yes, Google Finance does use Javascript and Adobe Flash. Martin Porcheron 17:40, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Major Claims uncited[edit]

Some big claims are uncited (user counts, and average time on site). Since this is about a commercial product, unless these figures have been released in a press release they are not sufficiently reliable to be cited by wikipedia, hence I recommend removal.192.102.214.6 12:41, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

other Google Finances?[edit]

"Google Finance" is also available at http://www.google.ca/finance and http://www.google.co.uk/finance. These do not seem to be just forwarders: you can set up a separate watchlist at each site, and each carries different news feeds. Are there other incarnations of Google Finance than these three, and should we also list those in the article or the infobox? AllGloryToTheHypnotoad (talk) 15:37, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
