I know there are hundreds of search engines out there with more popping up everyday. But only one really matters, and that's Google, after all, they control about 80% or more of the search market. So when I heard this new one called "Cuil", I said to myself: Oh great, another fly by night Google whana be.

But then when I heard that the ones behind this new upstart search engine were the original team of ex-Google engineers who created Google in the first place, then,...well, that caught my attention! Now, according to a lot of people that I talked to, some say this Cuil is slow, others say it is just as fast as Google. Other don't like the way the search results are presented, while others say that Cuil's innovative "Explore by Category Show More" box leaves Google in the dust.

Here's the link to the full story, there are some very bold claims: http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080728/wr_nm/internet_search_dc

Yeah, I tried out Cuil a couple times, and even it does have 3 times as many indexed pages, it's search relevance leaves much to be desired. Doing a google search on a topic will generally give you lots of highly relevant material. Cuil seems to give you material that has extremely little relevance to the search. For now Cuil is Fail.

It can't be easy, making a search engine that can give billions of possible results.
