The new search engine Cuil (pronounced as cool) launched earlier this week. Lots of online hype, but I am just not impressed by it.

Interface is interesting, although a bit too much text to read through. Results are just wacky! A post on Current regarding these wacky results asks you to type ‘Jesus’ in the search results…#1 result is Jesus Dress Up. Seriously check out the site.

I’ve typed in client URLs for the search phrase and yet those pages are not served up in the search results. With Google now owning about 90% of all online searches after its acquisition of Yahoo’s search capabilities, I’m glad to see there are some new companies trying to balance it all out. I just wish that Cuil lived up to the hype.
