MSN claims to offer free snapshot quotes in real time. An MSN (or hotmail.com) login is required. I looked at this and it does appear to be in real time. You just have to enter the symbol to get the snapshot quote. According to this, you are allowed up to 1,500 real time snapshot quotes free each month.
Google is working on obtaining free real time quotes for their site.
(Additionally, if you have a brokerage account with certain houses, there are packages that will stream market data from their feeds. I will be working on adding that information to this post, and if there is enough info, break it out into its own post.)
