Cuil news…

A new search engine has made its debut on the ‘net: Cuil (yes, that’s pronounced “cool”).  An article about it over on Breitbart.com says, “Finally, Cuil is hoping to attract traffic by promising not to retain information about its users’ search histories or surfing patterns—something that Google does, much to the consternation of privacy watchdogs.”  This is one reason why I thought people might be interested in reading about it, and giving it a test drive.  I know that some of Google’s antics with privacy have raised privacy  concerns.

The format of the results page is quite different than Google’s.  Even if you don’t plan to switch, it’s always good to keep up on the changing “face” of the ‘net.  One of the things that I do like about Google is that even if you get a lot of results from a search, it usually does a good job at putting the most popular results at the top of the heap.  I haven’t played around with Cuil enough yet to see how it compares…
