Allegedly the background of Cuil is supposed to be the bee's knees. It's supposed to be some great new method of searching, but quite frankly, I don't care what they've got under the hood - it's all about the results for me. Maybe in a few weeks/months when they get the kinks ironed out it'll be OK, but a couple of key points that were just brought up kill Cuil for me, too:
Bad arrangement of information. I don't want a magazine layout, I want information - the faster and easier the better.
No images. Bleck. Whose brain child was that? Are you kidding me? No pics? Half the Internet is 90% visual, and the rest you've got to see to believe! You have to have image search. Have to.
Google has mastered the principles of K.I.S.S. and that's why they'll still be kings of search in the foreseeable future.
