    Wierd/Cool Search Engines

    Having been reading up about the new "CUIL" search engine, developed by ex-Google employees, I thought I'd browse around and came accross a few other weird/cool search engines.

    Granted they are not as good as Google but they are different.

    Check em out if your bored:

    http://www.searchme.com

    http://www.webbrain.com

    http://www.quintura.com/

    http://bananaslug.com/

    http://www.fasteagle.com/

    http://www.zuula.com

    https://www.chacha.com/


    The new one: http://www.cuil.com/

    IMO is awful, the results layout isn't very good, if you put "CUIL" into it's search, it doesn't even list itself first and if you use Internet Explorer and make your browser a window (IE: not maximised) and then maximise that window, the page bar at the bottom is frozen in the middle of the screen.


    So IMO, www.google.com is still the best search engine on the Internet.

    www.hotbot.com used to be wierd but is not quite civil.
    www.dogpile.com has also improved alot.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    Google is the best from my expeirence although their new igoogle thing has broke the gmail module which does my head in, i cant just open emails up from the main page as the links dont work in the emails, i actually have to go to gmail now then into the email to open links. And i cant opt out of this forced test which annoys me.
