Don't know about MSIE, but Firefox is open source so you can read the code
to find out.

The Firefox engine is called "Gecko."
IE...after a bit of searching, I believe is called "Trident."

Along with Mozilla, Netscape 6/7, Galeon, Epiphany, K-Meleon and

Correct. For IE Windows, anyway. IE Mac is called Tasman. Opera is
called Presto. Safari and Konqueror both use KHTML. And I'm not going
any further than that! :-)
