    Default Who here actually uses cuil?
    The other day, some of us on the IRC were testing out the new search engine cuil (pronounced "cool"), supposedly better and more relevant than Google.

    We came to the conclusion- it's useless.

    You try it, search for a few things and see for yourself:

    cuil


    some info too: Cuil - The World's Biggest Search Engine

    I completely agree. I just went on the Cuil search site and searched a couple of terms. There were zero results. When I went on Google, there were around 40,000 results.

    I'm definitely sticking with google.

    I'm all for competition but Google is perfection in my opinion when it comes to searching so I don't see myself using anything else ever. Plus I also use it for e-mail, contacts, calendar.

    If I could just sign my life and information to google I would.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    I agree; Google is the best

    I like the fact that they just kept Google simple when it got "big" and didn't load the home page up with ads and other crap that just get in the way (Yahoo!)

    It's called iGoogle and its optional and customizable for every user.

    yeah I don't even have to use it to say it sucks. When you or anyone you know/ever knew/will ever know/everyone they all will ever know makes a web page, what engine do they put it on? Speaking of which why do they call it engine?.....hmmmmmmm. *reverts to cuil* "no results." W.T.H?!!! (jk)
