Their new search engine Cuil, pronounced “cool” is the latest project from the husband and wife tag team.

The new search engine is being touted as being faster, bigger, and far improved over Google.

Cuil features a unique ranking system which aims to be context-based.

This means that it looks at the content of pages, to see how relevant they are to a search query. It will also display images whenever possible to go with search results.

This is different from Google, which relies on Pagerank. The hope for the two is that Cuil will catch on with the public, and will be able to compete it a big market.
