I can't get to cuil very often. Usually won't come up at all. They should have bought some bandwith. They take pains to let you know it's pronounced "cool." I hereby pronounce it "swill."



Excellent point. I didn't even think about the relevancy rank. I too like the tabs and explore functionality. But you are right that in the end it is how good the search results are that will determine Cuil's fate.



Personally, I don't like the layout format. Are we to assume the most relevant result is in the top left and works its way down each column? Granted, with any new launch there are kinks to work out, but I haven't found relevant results (or pictures)--quality over quantity.

On a brighter note, I do like the idea of the tabs and Explore by Category function.
