Not Cuil

Cuil, pronounced "cool" was developed by 2 former Google employees that happen to be a husband and wife team. According to a NY Times article in todays paper, this new search engine was launched today with the promise of returning more comprehensive and relevant results. Google is currently the top search engine, being used for over 60% of all searches done in the US. Yahoo is a distant second with a little over 20% usage. With the promise of better results and a more user friendly layout, I was excited to try Cuil. After happily typing, I got this message:

"We'll be back soon...

Due to overwhelming interest, our Cuil servers are running a bit hot right now. The search engine is momentarily unavailable as we add more capacity. Thanks for your patience."

Not Cuil.
