Thanks to the support of the always amazing Mozilla community, we got more than 8 million Firefox 3 downloads in 24 hours. That’s more Firefox downloads than we’ve ever had in a single day -- an impressive feat indeed!

Please be patient while the good people of Guinness review our World Record attempt. This might take a few days so please check back here. And, a huge thanks for all of your support!

Cuil, the latest search engine startup to come out swinging from its corner with the hope of knocking out Google, is instead taking a beating that could do it long-term damage as a credible contender.

Good find Garmy, I hadn't heard of this before :)

Not the best way to enter the scene. I tried a few searches, 90% of the results are spam or other dodgy looking websites. Sure, Cuil may index more pages, but Google display relevant results, not just anything and everything.

Thanks Garmy I've just Googled Cuil :)


Welcome to Cuil—the world’s biggest search engine. The Internet has grown. We think it’s time search did too.

The Internet has grown exponentially in the last fifteen years but search engines have not kept up—until now. Cuil searches more pages on the Web than anyone else—three times as many as Google and ten times as many as Microsoft.

Rather than rely on superficial popularity metrics, Cuil searches for and ranks pages based on their content and relevance. When we find a page with your keywords, we stay on that page and analyze the rest of its content, its concepts, their inter-relationships and the page’s coherency.

Then we offer you helpful choices and suggestions until you find the page you want and that you know is out there. We believe that analyzing the Web rather than our users is a more useful approach, so we don’t collect data about you and your habits, lest we are tempted to peek. With Cuil, your search history is always private.

Cuil is an old Irish word for knowledge. For knowledge, ask Cuil.

Cuil's search engine launched July 28 with designs on eating the lunches of Google, Yahoo and Microsoft. Cuil crashed back to earth when too many users tried to access it and angered Web site proprietors by showing competitors photos next to their search results. Cuil headed back into application development to tweak the search algorithm and the results have improved somewhat.
