When I tried it, I got a server error. Seems a bit pointless trying to complete with Google unless they have something very unique to offer. Trying to sell an improved search algorithm to the general public isn't going to be enough.

It looks like the b*stard love child of google and facebook. Its just google but more confusing and with a blurb next to each search result.

Ha. Very true. The search for 'Cambridge' comes up with the university and a picture of Jack Straw. Given that he went to leeds, this seems somewhat unecessary. Arrse also has a picture of the lord chancellor, but only after the search term "arrse" returned 15 pages of rvops and other sites. There is obviously a completely messed up algorithm though, as the army site comes up next to the BFBS logo which can't be coincidence.

I wonder what we have to do with the lord chancellor.

can see where your coming from, i did a bit of digging and gound out that

Anna Patterson left Google in 2006 after authoring several patents related to search. she is one of the co-founders of cuil, she joined google in 2004.

me thinks they may have a few insider secrets, which they believe might just upset the apple cart.

im sticking with google :D
