New Internet search engine...

Regardless what your Internet search engine of choice is, Cuil (cool) is new and by former Google employees that I believe is worth a look. It?s pretty snappy and results are displayed a bit differently. Here?s the link: http://www.cuil.com/

    If by snappy you mean slow, then yes it's "snappy".

    No. To be fair though, I did forget to add YMMV . Thanks for the post, and I hope you give Cuil a chance as it hasn't been out the gate 24 hours yet .

    I didn't get any results for things like "snappy" and "clap". I mean, you type in anything into google, and your get results.

    Searching cuil for "cuil" doesn't result in cuil.com. Doing the same search in Google does.

    I don't like how the results are displayed at all. It seems like they just tried to be different for no apparent reason

    Yeah it's a disgraceful attempt if you ask me. It's almost embarrassing, and very slow compared to Google.



    CUIL!!

    And if you are a liberal, then you got an "education",

    but if you are a conservative, then you are ruined for life by what you saw!

    For fun I typed in "balls''... I got very product-oriented commercial results rather than the usual total randomness if I had used Google. Intresting.
