judging from this list, does anyone have suggestions for whats currently most secure online wallet?
There's no such thing as a secure online wallet, and there never will be due to the nature of Bitcoin.

At best, there's blockchain.info. It's the least insecure of all of them due to how it is designed.

Anyone know if anyone ever got any bitcoins/USD from the bitcoinica fiasco?  I had 150BTC in bitcoinica, but unfortunately missed the deadline earlier this year to submit my claim.  Ooops.  Just curious if any bitcoin/usd ever materialized for anyone, or if they remain "locked up" in Gox.

No, we are still working on it. Gox is not playing nice, holding to coins hostage and using the coins for leverage.

I've already accepted that I won't ever get any of those coins back, and at this point I consider Gox at least as responsible for that as everyone who was involved in bitcoinica.

Mt. Gox (Mark) has kept the money and BTC. They had the ability to pass it on but refused. Sad

Are there any possible legitimate reasons for him to behave this way?

They say it is "company policy" but refuse to explain what that policy is.

This should be stickied to the top of every forum.  When in the hell are we going to get our cash + coins back?

Not inputs.io. Cheesy

Just as a reference point for this comment: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=248803.msg3504172#msg3504172

BTC4100 has apparently been "stolen" from Inputs.io. Not much information yet, but it still needs attention.

It's on the backlog, of course. Not easy to forget about this one because of its relative size.

Stolen my eye. He just left over a million dollars in bitcoins on the server, after all his talk about security?

Very true, and updated my post to reflect the funds being..."stolen"...

There's not enough information for me to make an informed opinion yet...but seriously, who keeps BTC4100 in a hot wallet? It seems like criminal negligence at that point...

Going to need to agree with Korbman why was their so much in the hot wallet it should have been in a cold wallet, the talk about security systems from a few months back is also a point. Although I recall TF did say it was not his program still.

I have added the ZigGap incident. Coming up are Silk Road v2, 50BTC, and Inputs.io. Hopefully I can get most of these done today.

These keep adding up very quickly. I just don't understand why those exchanges don't spend enough money to fully secure their exchange. It seems like they aren't that hard to hack.
