I have used Personal Capital for several months now.  I have found it very easy and its layout is straight forward.  I have not found it useful for budget tracking, but for net worth tracking.  It syncs automatically and grabs information from all of your financial institutions.  One feature I do like the most is that they track your “personal index.”  This is your net worth and how it is growing over time.  It also tracks your asset allocation through all of your portfolios.  This is helpful to quickly calculate where you need invest to get to your proper allocation.
