With a good bit probably neither.

BUT which do you see more often in stores? I have personally never seen
a LOX.

Plain square drive was superior to Phillips years ago but the quality of
a lot of square drive have gone down hill.
I have a stock of thousands of square drive. If I were to change styles
it would be the Torx. It has been around for a very long time and is
easily found in stores.
