Cuil, an old Irish work for "knowledge" is looking better and better to some by implementing features that Google has yet to use. These features include:
Drilldowns - Basically a way to close the range of relevant search items. If you search for something ambiguous a box will popup asking if you would rather search further for something a little more specific giving you a window like so:
Tabs - Small clarifications that you can click on to make a more specific search, with hopes of getting more of what you want on a single page.
and Search Term Suggestions - While you are typing it offers various ideas of what you may be going towards and you can select one ofthem to make your search go faster.
Cuil looks to offer the most correct results based on the search input, and as such doesn't supposedly doesn't worry about popularity when search strings become more specific than 1 or 2 words.
In all, and after a little use their engine is fairly nice, has a few things to work out but is less than a year old so what can you expect? Check it out at Cuil.com
