Cuil is an old Irish word for knowledge. The world’s biggest search engine as they claimed it to be. Can this search engine replace the great Google?

Their claim:
"Cuil searches more pages on the Web than anyone else—three times as many as Google and ten times as many as Microsoft."

"Rather than rely on superficial popularity metrics, Cuil searches for and ranks pages based on their content and relevance. When we find a page with your keywords, we stay on that page and analyze the rest of its content, its concepts, their inter-relationships and the page’s coherency."

We have seen the evolution of search engines with popular rise and fall of many of them. I had tried WebCrawler, Infoseek, Lycos, AltaVista, Magellan, Excite, HotBot, Yahoo!, Google and MSN. Let's see where Cuil can go. Singapore already had their own search engine called Rednano not long ago.
