I'm trying out a new search engine called Cuil.

According to the site,
'Tom Costello, our founder and CEO, comes from Ireland, a country with a rich mythology around the quest for wisdom. Cuil is the Gaelic word for both knowledge and hazel, and features prominently in ancient legend. One famous story tells of a salmon that ate nine hazelnuts that had fallen into the Fountain of Wisdom and thereby gained all the knowledge in the world. Whoever ate the salmon would acquire this knowledge.'

If you say so. Anyway, the company claims Cuil is "the world's biggest search engine" and promises not to collect any personal information from users - which in my book is very, well, cool.

Anybody have any thoughts or experiences to share on this?
