New Kid In Town

I heard about this on the BBC last week so thought I would have a look at a new search engine that has been launched: Cuil.

Apparently named after the Gaelic word for knowledge with a game plan of being 'different to Google' the site launched last week with a few issues. The main points of differentiation are that it references a larger number of sites than Google, it attempts to categorise the results and has some nifty loooking column layouts and rollover effects.

Pretty sure they will not be taking over as the number one search engine any time soon but sometimes it is good to try something different....
