Cuil

by @ 1:59 pm. Filed under Technology

It is called Cuil (pronounced cool). Me? I would probably call it crazy (pronounced craaazzzyyyy). What is Cuil? Cuil is a brand new search engine just launch today. And the developers are pretty energetic. They plan to topple the search colossus Google. The word cuil comes from Gaelic and means knowledge (and probably highly optimistic). But seriously, taking on Google? That’s like me becoming the starting quarterback for the New England Patriots this year. Google has an estimated value of $66 billion…incredible! Here is a list of other search engines that have tried the David and Goliath thing with Google…Teoma, Vivisimo, Snap, Mahalo and Powerset… exactly, I have never heard of them either…so how is Cuil different? And why do its founders think they can succeed where others have failed? Well, three former Google employees have founded the company for one thing. And they intend to approach “search” differently…Here is a quote from BBC News “Instead of just looking at the number and quality of links to and from a webpage as Google’s technology does, Cuil attempts to understand more about the information on a page and the terms people use to search”. I tried Cuil this morning. It was very slow. That was probably becuase it was the newcomers first day. Once connected I loved the way results were displayed…give it a try.
