Microsoft A senior Microsoft executive told a BBC documentary that people should use commercial software if they're looking for stability. "Some people want to use community-based software, and they get value out of sharing with other people in the community. Other people want the reliability and the dependability that comes from a commercial software model. And again, at the end of the day, you make the choice based on what has the highest value to you."

Firefox actually is a bit unreliable. The others are pretty good though.

It appears to be an opinion as some people got a positive view with Firefox reliability side.
