mozilla = Built from the source code that was released by Netscape

netscape = ??  I don't know.  IMO we should not have a package by this
name.  Netscape is the name of the company and not the product.  The
product is Netscape Navigator / Communicator.

navigator = stand alone browser (no mail / news) released by Netscape
Communications Corp.

communicator = browser + mail + news etc released by Netscape
Communications Corp.

In many of the above there are sub-flavors like dynMotif (dynamically
liked against motif), static-motif etc.
