Public source, standard algorithms, documented protocol.  Short of 
actually checking their source code in the browser, looks secure in 
principle.  All the things that can easily be checked, they are doing right.

Of course, as with much security software, might have UI problems that 
cause ordinary mortals to use it insecurely.  I have not checked for 
that, nor have I checked that they are actually using the fine protocols 
that they claim to be using.
