    Interfaces, the rendering engine is (nearly) exactly the same. Differences come from versions of the gecko rendering engine. Which is also what makes safari, konquerer, etc render similar. Another reason that in my opinion, all windows users should use mozilla.

    Netscape has some slightly different code now and then, but generally uses the gecko rendering engine. They just call it the Netscape Gecko engine...

    Netscape = AOL, so it's bloatware. Netscape is based on the free and powerful Mozilla browser. It is always preferable to Netscape in any form. Firebird is a very lightweight (it's all relative) browser by Mozilla.org targeted directly as an IE replacement and rapidly gathering a cult-like following.

    Safari is based on the Konquerer rendering engine.
