Well, everyone is talking about the new search engine, Cuil and it shows. The new search engine pronounced ‘cool’ and comes from an old Irish word meaning ‘knowledge’. The site has indexed around 120 billion web pages, which it claims is three times more than any other search engine, and results are organised by ideas rather than just rankings. It also promises complete user privacy. Cuil will attempt to analyse the context of each page and the concepts behind each query, thereby grouping similar results together and sorting them by category.
The Internet has grown exponentially in the last fifteen years but search engines have not kept up—until now. Cuil searches more pages on the Web than anyone else—three times as many as Google and ten times as many as Microsoft.

By declaring its aim of taking on Google, Cuil joins a long list of others that have tried and largely failed to dent the search giant’s market share. Other contenders include Teoma, Vivisimo, Snap, Mahalo and Powerset.
Weird fact is, it does not even find one result on a usual search term.
