Whatever Happened to Cuil? How Cuil lost it's cool. Freedom msg:3898772 4:46 pm on Apr 23, 2009 (gmt 0)
After the first flurry of news reports on the launch of Cuil, site traffic soared to more than 2 million unique visitors in July, according to Compete.com. One month later, though, traffic dropped by half. By September, Cuil had 400,000 unique visitors and in March, 140,000 visitors. Inaptly-named Cuil has disappeared from view [ marketwatch.com]

They haven't performed too well [ webmasterworld.com]. ;) jmccormac msg:3899360 8:05 am on Apr 24, 2009 (gmt 0)
It is still there and still spidering. However it is not a significant player in terms of marketshare.

Looks like they have made the layout a bit more conventional.
Its a good job that nobody is using it. I could get some serious complaints from people who believed that the icon saying "win a bottle of champagne" was put there by me.
