Post Re: CUIL beats GOOGLE

We'll see.

I've tried multiple searches in Cuil so far, and all of them hang. None completed.
I tried both IE and FireFox.

Cuil appears to be experiencing technical difficulties...
Is this possibly Bill Gates' new project?

Funny I used it before posting about it and it worked fine. Maybe because it was broadcast on the news. Give it a day or so. And I just used it again and used your user name. I will PM the info I got in seconds.

I also used it to search out Gallium arsenide and got far more pages than Google. But haven't digested the new seach yet to say one way or the other.

Yeah.
That's what I was thinking too.
Millions of people seeing it flash on the internet, and BAM. Suddenly their usage picks up with people like me trying to use it.

It will be interesting. I read an article on it, and it sounds like they've got enough of a different approach to justify usage.
I'm picky. I've already discarded "yahoo" and a bunch of other search engines cause google gave me better matches.
Since cuil has some of the people who were with google, I'm hoping the quality of their search engine is good.

I got your PM.
I'm still running into problems.
Maybe a work firewall issue. Or google toolbar is doing something sinister behind the scenes...

I'll try it again when I get home.

Main reason I use google is for the quality of the search.
It usually gives me what I'm looking for in the first couple of pages.

And one of the articles talked about how Cuil specified how many web-pages they were examining, while google no longer talks about that. I suspect your observation is a by-product of google not matching Cuil's breadth?
(just a suspicion)

If cuil can match google's quality (or better), it gets my vote.

EDIT:
Cuil opened its search results, but it lacks google's speed at the moment.
I suspect that will be refined over the weeks / months ahead.

Not for me. It has to be with your PC at work or at home. Or both. Try a friends or have them try it. Or the Library.

Let me use beanstalk and see what happens. ten pages at about 1 second.

I like the way the search results are shown.

I only searched out my own name - and got about ten pages of results.

I'm happy.
