Revision Content

Gecko is the name of the layout engine developed by the Mozilla Foundation. It was originally named NGLayout.

Gecko's function is to read web content, such as HTML, CSS, XUL, and JavaScript, and render it on user's screen or print it.

Gecko is used in many applications, including a few browsers, such as Firefox, Mozilla Suite, Camino etc. (For the more complete list, please refer to Wikipedia's article on Gecko.) Products using the same version of Gecko have identical support for standards.
