"Quote" opens a whole new page, "Quickquote" uses Ajax to load the quote box inline on the same page.

What he said. I really don't know why "Quote" and "Reply" even exist. I never use them...

I use them too.

Whenever I am reading a long thread, and am on page 3 of 17, I use the middle mouse button on Quote to open the quote box, in a new window. Then I can keep reading the thread.

In this way, I can make sure that point I was going to add is actually relevant to the discussion, and has not yet been made. It would be the ego of a very deluded individual that thinks the comment they have to make on page 3 of a 17 page thread has not already been made. Better to check first.

I use the full quote to open a new reply page while I continue reading the thread. I do this in order to make sure that the point I'm about to make hasn't already been made.

As others have said, quote (and reply) can be opened in a new tab (or will open over the original thread, and quote (and reply) have a few more features. The latter difference might vanish in the user interface redesign--I don't know.

Opening a quote in a second tab can be a little safer than editing in the original thread if you want to do something complex like replying to more than one message. However, either way, you can use quickquote to easily open and quote multiple messages, though you need to quickquote a message, copy the text you want, then cancel the reply: having multiple quickquotes open confuses the system about which one you're actually editing.

I quickquoted to gather the quotes at the top, after initially quickreplying. However, I have Lazarus installed for Firefox so if I mis-key, nothing is lost. I also usually preview my messages to check for errant formatting or grammar (this rarely completely works, sadly). If this had been a multi-page thread, I would usually open each page in a tab so I can access the entire message by switching tabs.

In short, the two versions allow more methods of editing and replying than either alone would.

It looks like their usefulness has already been pretty much explained by others.
