Wow...two things:

1. I think it is funny how spywarebaniser said "the layout sucks btw" and then everyone said: "layout looks good" "love the layout" "the layout is sick"

2. I think some fanboyness is starting to show in people for google

Just an observation, lol.

They probably have the biggest website database or something.

Anyway, I don't like it. Google will always be the best for me.

That would be pretty funny.

That reminds me of the whole thing with John McCain's myspace

I agree, that layout is awesome on the homepage. Except I don't like the way it looks after you search for something...too much contrast.

But I spect' I'll stay with google myself

By biggest they mean they index the most pages. And just because google has more results than cuil on on search term, doesnt meen that google's results will be more relevant...

I really like it and can see it catching on. I think it needs to be a little more compact though because I could only see 6 results before I had to scroll

Try this: http://www.cuil.com/search?q=computer%20forums&sl=long

If they can fix up the search engine, I'll definitely use it. The UI is there already...it just needs a bit of work before it can fully contend with Google or Live Search.
