Welcome to Cuil—the world’s biggest search engine. The Internet has grown. We think it’s time search did too.
This new web tool cuil is pitched as the world’s latest, largest and swiftest search engine. Cuil was launched on Monday ( 28-7-2008 ) with 120 billion pages or ‘thrice’ the volume of the Google index.
Cuil is expected to search more web pages than Google and 10 times as many as the search engine of Microsoft.
Where Cuil scores over rivals is the way it indexes the web and handle queries by users. Both are costly operations, but Cuil claims to have found a way to slash those costs.
As a business proposition, Cuil is obviously a big bet … No other search engine has come close to entering the public consciousness like this. Of course, Cuil doesn’t have to trounce Google on day one. It took Google quite some time to surpass Alta Vista and Yahoo in the search wars
