The speed of light? Seriously though, the terms are often used interchangeably. The key is to understand the level of leakage necessary to trip the device and interrupt. Is it at a level that will protect you, or at a higher level that may protect the equipment but not you. I would opt for the former.

If you are looking at a "GFCI" or "GFI" in line power cord, do not even go there. You will be playing "You Bet Your Life" with them.

There is no difference. The "c" stands for circuit. It is just terminology. potato-potato.
