Cuil Search Engine

Ex-Google employees have launched Cuil (pronounced "cool"), a new search engine. Cuil developer Anna Patterson believes that the new search engine indexes three times as many web sites as Google, although Google still claims to have the largest site index. Cuil presents search results in a more magazine-like, multi-column display, rather than the traditional list of results. Images and additional page content are also provided. Unlike Google, Cuil promises not to retain user information, which is a nice feature for users concerned about privacy.
