cuil_com There are a new search engine on the net. The name is Cuil. Cuil is an old Irish word for knowledge. For knowledge, ask Cuil. On the website, Cuil said that Cuil searches more pages on the Web than anyone else—three times as many as Google and ten times as many as Microsoft. I don’t know whether this is true or not.

But, I’m preferred to search in scour than in Cuil. Since searching in scour, you can earn point and when you have enough point, you can change it with dollar.

Btw, this search engine have a really nice interfaces and fast loading website. I don’t whether this is my fast Internet connection 😀 or Cuil speed itself is fast. About the interfaces, the interfaces really good. The accordion panel on the right of search result makes me busy hover and hovering again to see the nice effect. Lately, I know that this effect using Mootools – a JavaScript framework.

There are a lot of Cuil features such as search result that can be categorized. Change cearch result layout whether using 2 column layout or 3 column layout. Nice tooltips. A tabbed category view. Search term suggestion.

Cuil’s technology was developed by a team with extensive history in search. The company is led by husband-and-wife team Tom Costello and Anna Patterson. Mr. Costello researched and developed search engines at Stanford University and IBM; Ms. Patterson is best known for her work at Google, where she was the architect of the company’s large search index and led a Web page ranking team. They refused to accept the limitations of current search technology and dedicated themselves to building a more comprehensive search engine. Together with Russell Power, Anna’s former colleague from Google, they founded Cuil to give users the opportunity to explore the Internet more fully and discover its true potential
