Former Google Employee Starts Cuil Search Engine

Written by Daniel
Tuesday, 29 July 2008

Cuil is pronounced like "cool"

This year marks ten years since search giant Google sprang from the shadows and quickly began to dominate the web search landscape. The search landscape ten years ago was a much different place than it is today and the search engines that were big at the time are mostly nothing but memories now. [Front page...]

Put bluntly, it 5u><0r5.

I've not looked at it myself, but pretty much everything I've read has rated it like -1 on a scale of 1-10.

Has some blindingly obvious bugs. Was looking at search results for AOA, and it was displaying photos which do not even exist here.

Seems crazy, they could potentially be sued for showing someone's photo next to something nasty.

Should we ask them if they would like us to host them...

Check these results:
aoaforums - Cuil

Looks like Daniel is now a young blonde lady!

Also, on the first page of results this page is shown:
asus a7n266 driver download

Blatant .cn domain with loads search engine spamming keywords!

Why only 9,456 results? There's a heck of a lot more pages on AOA than that, and they're the claiming to be the only ones indexing the entire web.

They're making themselves look like complete amateurs.
