You will find that proprietary systems will receive less (frequently
none) support. This is due to difficulties developing for proprietary
systems, but also due to effective impossibility to varify
security of proprietary systems. So open source is at a distinct
advantage here.

For an end user interested in secure communication it is always a
good idea to pick the most supported platform. In case of browsers,
that will be Firefox and Chromium (not Chrome), in that order of 
precedence.

In general, browsers have giant vulnerability surfaces, and should
not be used for anything serious. A little security is a dangerous thing.
