Cuil (http://www.cuil.com/)

Rather than trying to mimic Google's method of ranking the quantity and quality of links to Web sites, Patterson says Cuil's technology drills into the actual content of a page. And Cuil's results will be presented in a more magazine-like format instead of just a vertical stack of Web links. Cuil's results are displayed with more photos spread horizontally across the page and include sidebars that can be clicked on to learn more about topics related to the original search request.

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.



results look pretty muddled to me.....

Well the name is stupid.

And when you search for Chiefs it gives you kcchiefs.com with a pic of the Texans' helmet.

I would rather use this:

http://www.searchme.com/

It's still in beta, but it is oh-so cool.

Sorry your search did not return any results :(

We didn’t find any results for “chiefs”

Some reasons might be...

a typo. Please check your spelling.
your search includes a term that is very rare. Try to find a more common substitute.
too many search terms. Please try fewer terms. Finally, try to think of different words to describe your search.

The stack function is pretty interesting too. It's like flipping through a stack of your favorite magazine covers, to see if you've read them or not.

Cuil sucks...I searched my website and it wasn't even on the first page of results...

Ripoff of Coverflow for iTunes which is now also available with Leopard as a way of viewing all folders and files in the finder. It's a very, very nice interface for graphic design work as well.
