Cuil (pronounced ‘cool’)

Some ex-Googlers have started a new search engine that seems promising. It’s hard to beat the big G, but I’m all for alternatives – a little more diversity in the search engine market can only be a good thing, especially when it seems the big only get bigger and tend to gobble each other up.

Cuil – The World’s Biggest Search Engine
Cuil searches more pages on the Web than anyone else—three times as many as Google and ten times as many as Microsoft.

Rather than rely on superficial popularity metrics, Cuil searches for and ranks pages based on their content and relevance. When we find a page with your keywords, we stay on that page and analyze the rest of its content, its concepts, their inter-relationships and the page’s coherency.

Though oddly, searching for ‘cuil’ in Cuil returns no results relevant to the site itself:

– as opposed to the Google results. Kinda weird. Their servers also seem to be hiccupping a bit right now.

  1. very cool, i like how they try to keep everything on one page and the clean navigation is a plus compared to google’s…

  2. I like sparse, and this ain’t it. Throw a stylesheet at google and this is what you’d get.
