    I was reading on Yahoo! a couple of days ago that some former Google engineers have launched a new search engine: Cuil.com. Because I was curious to see how it looks like, I've visited the website. My opinion is that the design of the site doesn't look bad. But a slight improvement to it wouldn't hurt anyone..There's a broken link I've noticed, which should be fixed..In general though, I think it's a nice ( and probably even promising ) little search engine. What do you guys think ? :)

    At least my Sqidoo lens is already indexed on Cuil. Let's see how they'll perform in the future, although I highly doubt they will become a big competitor to Google fast (or at all?). Anyway, a little competition doesn't hurt the search engine market.

    Oh, here's a nice post about some issues with the brand name "Cuil" as such:

    LATER EDIT ( by Midwest ): Another link activated..now you owe my another beer :D

    @ Masterweb & Querblogger: Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see what impact will this new search engine have, once it establishes itself better. Might not be a #1 competitor for Google or other big search engines, but who said one more such SE is bad ? :p

    It's definitely worth to submit your link. Simply look at all the hype that is generated about Cuil lately, they slowly become popular... :biggrin:

    @Midwest: Damn, that gets more and more expensive. Couldn't you increase my post count, would be way simpler for you! ;)

    From my point of view, a beer is better than a simple post count increase :D

    i cant submit my link.

    i have contacted them asking to buy a small share.why?some of the richest people are the people that bought a cheap share of google when it started up - they took a tiny gamble, it paid of.I consider this a lottery ticket :D

    I've seen a lot of fuzz lately about this new search engine in a lot of different forums. But the question still remains - would it be able to compete with Google in terms of popularity and usability?

    Hmm..I think only time will tell if Cuil.com will indeed by good enough to survive in the SE jungle :)
