Not exactly... it's a mozilla core in a native application, as opposed to an interpreted XUL front-end. It's a bit faster in both GNU/Linux and Windows.

Not exactly ;) Mozilla Firefox does use XUL for it's front-end.

There are browsers that do use the native controls instead of XUL while still leveraging the Gecko layout engine to display HTML, for example Camino for Mac OS X (http://www.mozilla.org/products/camino/).
