Give me back end services and not interface design. Personally, I'd like to trade directly from my
finacial software (Money, Quicken...). You would use the net to move the small amounts of data, but
not have to worry about pumping gobs of graphics and page layout data.

I totally agree with the above statement. I don't remember E*TRADE having the problems they are having now when their site was more text-based and less glitz and glamour. I could load the "old" E*TRADE home page in almost no time. Now, with their new focus on marketing, it takes much longer to load their crappy, content-free home page. I used to be able to get six quotes with one query and now I'm lucky if their single quote even works. I am in the process of transferring my funds from E*TRADE to SureTrade. I will never again have an account with a brokerage I see advertising on TV.
