I am a premium member of stockcharts.com and I use it as my main charting tool. As it is dedicated to charting, the time the operators put into making it useful and easy to work with is good.
The best thing I find with it is the screener and the flexibility of using it. Once you get the hang of it (there is a learning curve) you can screen based on pretty much any type of metric that you want to. In addition you can scan intraday so from a daytrading perspective it does work. I use it mainly for swing trading though - I have set up a MACD crossover with rising accum and rising RSI that I then review. Has been working well to identify potential trades.
The main downside is setting up the charts that you want to use - there are a lot of options but once you get used to it it works well. I now have multiple charts set up where I can scan stocks based on multiple time periods with multiple indicators and overlays.
I actually use it as a trading journal; for each trade I annotate and write my notes as the trade progresses. Works well.
