The new search engine Cuil (an old Irish word for knowledge), has been receiving quite the press across the "Internets" today. I didn't know what all the hype was about until I gave it a try. Cuil actually searches more pages on the web than anyone else (over 120 billion) — that's even three times as many as Google and 10 times as many as Microsoft. Rather than deriving search results from those that rank high, Cuil actually finds websites based on topics, content, and relevance by sorting web pages into groups and categories. This new way of searching helps you refine searches and get you to what you're looking for faster. And since it was created by three former senior Google employees, you're guaranteed a search experience that actually works!
