Just went there and their server is down!

We’ll be back soon...
Due to overwhelming interest, our Cuil servers are running a bit hot right now. The search engine is momentarily unavailable as we add more capacity.
Thanks for your patience.

Edit: Well looks like they put 50p in the meter because now it's working Smiley

We didn’t find any results for “Firefox”
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.

That's very good samuria, just what I needed, nagging by a woman. Apart from turning the sound down have you figured away to shut her up yet? She keeps telling me to type something!
Cuil update
Edit: Ok I saw the mute button and turned her off. Now she is waving at me! She is cute though.

Re: New search engine - but not for those with poor sight

it won't fully load in opera, will in konqueror and firefox.  search returned 16,600,000 results for 'firefox', but there is something wrong with the site as it fails to fully load the search results in firefox and causes problems in konqueror.
it's no match for google.
edit:  forgot to add that it is eminently readable.  no problem with font size.
