Since Kmel & FF both use the Gecko engine, is there any difference in their programing methodology?

De facto, KM and FF are simply different shells, wrappers for Gecko engine.

All FF GUI is XUL-based (->cross-platform but heavy) and KM uses Windows system libs (mono-platform but light).

Moreover, KM has its own macrolanguage, making possible to create some added functionality not eating much of system resources.

FF needs to integrate new XUL-extension where KM can sometime use text based macro-file.
