Cuil Search Engine

webCuil, pronounced cool, is the newest search engine out to steal a slice of Google's pie. I just checked it out for the first time by searching for toronto blog.

The results were fantastic! I mean, look at what's #1 in Cuil when you conduct that search. That's pretty cuil.

Too bad it can only find less than half the stuff I put in correctly. Maybe they slipped you some payola for the plug, because I can't see why anyone would make this switch. Sorry, even the layout is crap.

IMHO, trying to slay the Google beast at this point is a large exercise in frustration.

I suspect everyone will give Cuil a whirl for shits and giggles and promptly return to Google.

I've done some more playing around with Cuil, and it's pretty bad. They clearly weren't ready for their closeup.

Check out this result:

I wish I could see them, but flickr (and similar sites) are blocked from my work location.

As far as cuil goes, it seems to be hit or miss. I searched for the name of my company (a rather large bank) and got no results.

Searching for my name got me a bunch though.

I'd pronounce it like "cuisine". Kool, kewl, cul, kul all sound like "cool" despite the different spellings. But "cuil"? No!

cue-ill I guess sounds almost like cool.

Yes, that wasted two minutes of my life. Careful what you promote in the future. lol.

I searched for my last name. On Google, I'm #1... on Cuil, I wasn't on the first 3 pages... that's detriment for me.
