    Hi there,

    I have Netscape 7, Mozilla 1.6 and Firefox 0.8 right now and have noticed that all three seem to render websites the same. As i use firefox, is there much point in me having (and testing sites) on the other two browsers? Or, has anyone noticed any differences in rendering between these three browsers? Indeed, does anyone here actually use netscape 7 or mozilla 1.6????

    Thanks!

    They're extremely similar for the most part, but they don't render 100% the same... you will often find some small bug/difference in your layout. The best thing you can do to reduce the risk of these occurring is to code efficiently with semantics in mind. List margin/padding, overflow are the worst culprits I've come across up to date.

    The other browsers are still useful for testing in, even if you store them in some dark corner of your PC and use them for this purpose alone.

    Yes, they do render 100% the same given same viewport size. It's the exact same code, although every once in a while the gecko engine updates (like 1.4 will render differently from 1.6, etc).
