So they finally did it, Google totally ruined Google Finance.

Did anyone have a good web alternative just to keep an eye on a long list of stocks?

FYI - the old google finance site is still available at http://finance.google.com/finance, though it is left to be seen when they will completely kill it.

This morning that redirected to the new thing, now it's there again... I hope they keep it as a separate thing, maybe someday update the charts to HTML5 and then not touch it again. They can keep the in-search finance stuff if they want, but it's not a replacement for a fast site with high density of info where you can keep an eye on dozens of tickers at a glance.

At the bottom of the new finance pages there's a "send feedback link". I encourage people displeased with this change to send a little something. You never know what might reach the right ears...

I exported my various portfolios to csv files. The old google finance is still working on my desktop (but not mobile).

When they finally kill it, I'll probably create google sheets which auto-update, unless I can find a good online replacement.

Someone recommended StockMarketEye to me. You can try it 30 days for free and if you like it it costs $100 as a one-time payment (no recurring subscription). It automatically imports price data from Google Finance and/or Yahoo Finance. You can set up multiple alerts for when a stock crosses a certain price or e.g. if the stock moves more than 5% in a day. So far it seems nice. The only thing I don't like is that it when an alert gets triggered, it seems to shows that only in the program and not pop it up to the desktop. I normally avoid checking my stocks every day to foster a longer-term mindset, but without the pop-up I kinda have to check them to see if an alert got triggered.

I know, I think it's probably temporary, maybe unless they get enough backlash.

They've announced the change, and this morning they started redirecting to the new one. I think we're in the middle of the transition to the new thing.

They should've just updated the charts from flash to HTML5 and left it alone for another 10 years...

When Yahoo "improved" Yahoo finance, the Canadian Yahoo finance site also had old setup for a while. And then they changed it to new. So don't expect Google's .ca to remain with old functionality.

The U.S. finance is also still unchanged, it was linked above.
But I'm sure it won't be long before it's gone, both the Canadian and U.S.

You'd think with all the smart people they're meant to have at Google, they'd be able to make a site with a decent design.  The new site is UGLY.  The main font is too big.  I mean, this is not rocket science...

The old site is working at finance.google.co.uk too.
