There is no better or worse. The new superglobals were introduced in PHP 4.1.0. Use them how you wish.
Also consider extract() and/or import_request_variables(). Personally I like: import_request_variables('gpc', 'r_'); Which in your example would result in: print $r_var; But it depends, going through predefined variables everytime can be fun too.
