Trident (also known as MSHTML) is the name of the layout engine for the Microsoft Windows version of Internet Explorer®. The view of contents using Trident will be the same as if the contents are viewed using Internet Explorer® itself.

Gecko® is the open source, free software web browser layout engine used in all Mozilla-branded software and its derivatives, including Firefox and later Netscape releases.


What is different?

1. Twin Engine: This version is capable of browsing using two engines (Gecko®, Trident).

2. NotJustBrowsing® is driven by Gecko® engine as its main source and Trident can be used when required (e.g, viewing local file system).

3. A website will be viewed using the same engine that was initially used to view the page and from where this website link was collected.

4. General activity indicators: On the top right hand corner (as seen in picture), there are two wipers. Each wiper represents activity of one engine. Left wiper for Gecko® and right wiper for Trident.

This can be one of the indications of which browsing engine is in use.

5. There will be a new browsing pane for each item that a user will double click on to in the Study Place.
