While it may seem odd to note today compared to perhaps 1996 or 1997, a new search engine launched today. Cuil
is a search engine focusing more on analyzing text relevance over ranking pages as might Google
. Reactions seen on Twitter today were mixed such as those heard from Chad Haefele
, Karin Dalziel
, and Engadget's soon to be Editor-at-Large Ryan Block
CNET's Rafe Needleman wrote at his WebWare site
about the launch and how it was not the best. Needleman's post showed screenshots of strange results returned by Cuil. Dalziel also linked to a screenshot she posted on Flickr
Have you tried Cuil today? What is your reaction to the launch of this new search engine?
