Get cuil, boy! Real cuil!

Boy, boy, crazy boy,
Get cool, boy!
Got a rocket in your pocket,
Keep coolly cool, boy!…  (lyrics for “Cool” from West Side Story)

Former Google staff members create new search engine.

Hmm, decided to give it a try by doing a search for Lost.

CUIL results

Google results

Prettier display but not sure of the layout of search results.  Will be interesting to compare results to see which one gives me what I want.  Just not sure it will become part of the vocabulary like Google did.  Is there room for yet another search engine?  Will Google pull a Microsoft and try to squeeze Cuil out of the arena?  Only time will tell.

    It looks good, and they say they have indexed more than Google, but certain sites definitely do not appear in Cuil. In my view they have a long way to go to compete with Google if the search results are not great!

    I think they are having serious growing pains in just the first week. Many of my fellow librarians are discounting them. I’ll willing to wait and see but they have a long way to go to beat Google.
