Could Cuil be the new Google?

Well, that's what the team behind it are hoping... A group of former Google engineers is going up against their ex-employers with a new search engine called Cuil (pronounced "cool"), a word derived from the Gaelic for knowledge.

Cuil uses 120 billion(!) webpages to build up its index of search results, which its makers say is more than Google (although Google adamantly denies this).

The main problem I can see with the new search engine is that is doesn't transform to a verb as readily as google did. Would you admit to "cuiling" yourself? If you'd like to try, click here.
