Yes.  That's based on Gecko 1.8 (which branched off the main development trunk 
in August 2005).  It's had a number of security fixes, of course.

Yeah, well.  It's the user-facing thing, so it points to the stable release 
version.  I suggest http://www.mozilla.org/ and looking at "Developer 
News",which takes you to

That's correct.  Firefox 2 and Firefox 1.5 use basically the same rendering 
engine (Gecko 1.8), with pretty much identical standards support.  Gecko 1.9 has 
been in development since August 2005, as I said.
