Cuil is pronounced like "cool"

This year marks ten years since search giant Google sprang from the shadows and quickly began to dominate the web search landscape. The search landscape ten years ago was a much different place than it is today and the search engines that were big at the time are mostly nothing but memories now.

In 1998, Alta Vista was the largest search engine according to CNN. Today, Alta Vista is a mere ghost of its former self. Google is currently in its prime and is by far the largest search engine in terms of usage. CNN says that Google holds a full 62% of the U.S. search market, dominating the top spot. A distant second place with 21% of the search market is Yahoo and bringing up a very distant third place is Microsoft with 8.5% of the search market.

Google is dominant in search and online advertising right now, but it has begun to lose some of its luster to early employees. Google has recently begun to lose key engineers and executives to other internet firms like Facebook.  [Dailytech...]  [Comment...]
