As the plugins are the same regardless of whether you use Mozilla,
Galeon, Konqueror, ... I don't think that it'd make much of a difference
(if I'm right and the problems are due to errors in the plugin),
especially since Netscape (version >= 6) and Mozilla are very similar
(the one being derived from the other code-wise). A point where it could
make a difference with different browsers are if one browser has a buggy
plugin interface and/or handling (and the other one doesn't).

Once. Very lean, but I cannot say a word about its performance with
Flash or Java ;-).

It's easy once you think about it that way: The frozen application
doesn't redraw itself (on exposure events), so rests of the window you
move over the frozen app remain there.
