    its not working flawless atm.
    got this on the 1st attempt

    We didn’t find any results for “guru3d”

    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.

    when i pressed the search again , it worked fine

    lol

    Playing around with it, it seems like cuil has some issues it still needs to fix.

    For example, type "Batman tops box office again" in google, then do the same in cuil.

    EDIT: If you take out the word "again" from that search, it brings up a ton of irrelevant information.

    Why don't need anymore search engines =l

    It seems to me that we already have too many of them!

    I think the presentation of the search results is interesting. The results themselves aren't very good, yet. It's time that Google gets a competitor, though, imo.

    I'll pass on any search engine that can't find any hits for "toshiba drivers" (like this one). I will, however, keep it in mind for later, should they improve.

    EDIT: It seems to have completed the search properly on the second attempt. Also, I rather like the layout of the results.

    Not really sure that it brings anything new to the game. For a search engine that does things a little different and adds a bit more I like

    www.searchme.com

    It's not perfect, but I like the visual results and that I can create stacks of webpages and embed the stacks into webpages. Very handy for collecting together web resources for use in the classroom.

    I tried a forum I visit on a regular basis that google has trouble finding, no results
    I then tried something a bit more general with 'Battlefield 2', no results found.
    Then to top it off I tried 'electronic arts', no results found.

    To be honest it seems to be a bit cr*p at the moment.

    So I searched for the first word and got some results. When I tried to modify the search, I was greeted with:

    No results because of high load...

    Due to excessive load, our servers didn't return results. Please try your search again.

    Wha! I don't think the site is yet that popular outside the 'nerd' circles. It looks as if they do have a total of one server running all the queries.
