Have to sadly agree. Corporate unification has already been accomplished in the post-PC world of touchpads, but now on Debian we essentially have the choice of Firefox or Chromium. Nothing else looks safe. The modern web is so complicated that maintaining security patches for a browser is no longer something that small teams of enthusiastic amateurs can handle, IMO.
