Just a few hours ago, Cuil was launched, and it has already created a fuss in the market. I just saw the reports on Techcrunch about the arrival of Cuil, and i decided to have some of my own observation.
Cuil says that "We do not keep logs of our users’ search activity.". Well, this is something i loved. I don't want the Magic-Mirror-On-The-wall to keep remembering all of my search information. That might be useful for Engineers over the Googleplex, but from my point of view, i certainly don't feel benefited from it.
While Google uses the right sidebar for ads, Cuil uses it to further refine the search, on various basis. I looked for India, and found a beautiful page. While a google search for same, is often a bit boring.
The UI of cuil is much better and easy to explore than that of Google. It offers top tabs also, alongwith a sliding sidebar.
Well, i use Google Service to post this blog, and another Google service to upload images over here, but we are talking about SEARCH here.
I think, Cuil is going to be a tough competitior of Google.
