Fair enough, but for curiosity's sake:  Do you notice differences
between these browsers, if they have the same rendering engine behind
the facade?

Doesn't that drive you nuts?

I do it from time to time, but I gave up on the notion of pandering to
specific browser foibles, long ago.  All I tend to notice is that some
browsers are rather dire at doing something that's been a part of CSS or
HTML for many years.  These days I relegate MSIE testing to "can it be
used?" never mind (too much) what it looks like.
