"Based on the same Gecko rendering engine as Mozilla Firefox, K-Meleon uses the native Windows API to create the user interface instead of using the cross-platform XUL layer. This allows the browser to integrate more closely with the operating system, and makes K-Meleon less resource-intensive and more responsive to user input, which is important for users of low-end hardware. This approach is similar to that of Galeon and Epiphany (for GNOME), and Camino (for Mac OS X)."
