Gecko layout engines

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Samuël van Laere, Jul 23, 2003.

  1. Just a couple of (perhaps stupid) questions:
    But will all browsers that are using Mozilla's Gecko layout engine display
    the same layout of a site?
    Is there any point of installing multiple Gecko engine browsers (Netscape
    and Mozilla for example) just to test a site?
    Can i asume that a test on Mozilla will work on all Gecko based browsers?

    All browsers that are using the same _version_ of the Gecko engine will
    display a site in the same way.

    Last I heard, Netscape was still based off 1.0, whilst the main Mozilla
    project is up to 1.4. Now Netscape is dead, I doubt we'll see another
    version of it - so Netscape users will be stuck on 1.0.
