Anonymous #1: YahooFinance offers more functionality than Grism, for sure. However, can you see how each watchlist/portfolio is doing without switching to it? Can you switch to a watchlist/portfolio with 1 click? Can you see basic fundamental data with 1 click? I find Grism's interface to be more convenient for the functionality that it does offer. And for the paranoid among us, your portfolio information is on your computer, not on Yahoo's servers.
Anonymous #2: Eclipse Trader is a well done application with lots of functionality especially on the technical analysis (TA) side. If you're really into TA, Eclipse Trader is probably the best open source application out there. However, if you're not into TA or a massive GUI with flashing Level II quotes and blinking option spreads, but just want to track your portfolios and watchlists in a convenient interface, you might want to take a second look at Grism.
