Default Firefox and Mozilla Suite : Difference?

Okay I'm totally dumbfounded, Whats the difference between Firefox and Mozilla Suite!? Besides the html editor and irc client and stuff, do they have the basic same function with same web engine?

pretty much what it says, firefox is a stand alone browser and mozilla suite is a bunch of apps together.

From the firefox site:

"Mozilla (Application Suite, also known as SeaMonkey) is a complete suite of web related applications, such as a browser, a mail/news client, a chat client and much more. Firefox is just a browser, which makes it a better choice if you already have a mail client for example. Also, since Firefox is smaller than the whole Mozilla suite, it's faster and easier to use.

Note, though, that Firefox is not the standalone Mozilla browser. The user interface in Firefox differs from Mozilla in many ways. For example, Firefox has customizable toolbars."
