There isn't one. They're all essentially the same save for minor differences Samsung makes for different carriers (in particular the modem).

Where you see differences is moving from GB->>>ICS->>>JB, so, logic says JB firmwares are probably better so far as improvements to kernel, memory management, etc goes. Having said that, plenty of people have a preference for ICS & even GB stock roms.

So...The only way you're going to find out is to try some of each.

Edit - They're all 'stable'. Carriers wouldn't release them to their customers if they weren't.
