Pages impossible to navigate until full page loads - due to long News list
Summary pages are very hard to navigate until they are fully loaded. The page keeps repositioning as more news items load, and the rigth side bar keeps repositioning.
The main issue with page navigation until the full page loads however is the long News list in the main frame. The sidebar for example keeps scrolling and repositioning while additional news items continue to load in the left side main frame. An EASY solution here... List the 10 most recent news stories only with a Load More... link at the bottom. This would allow the user to load additional new stories when ready but have the initial left frame news list load much quicker.
The right sidebar jumps all around for two reasons. One due to the news loading in the main frame and also until the ads display in the right frame. Also since ads display on top of financial and analyst charts. It would be nice to design a placeholder space for the ads, so everything is in the right position, and let the ads load in the background without impacting positioning of other objects on the page. Or simply load the content of the frame on top and let the ads load when ready underneath them. I think all user would prefer ads below the content for better usability.

Still waiting on this fix. The inability to scroll, navigate and use Yahoo Finance data until the entire page loads is driven I believe by the unlimited list of News that loads in the left-hand frame. Load the most recent 10 stories and then add a Load More... link. An ESY fix to greatly improve page loading times and usability.
