Welcome.
  

Are these constructed of the good-guy glass that won't explode?  I recall reading that many quality glass manufactorers swapped to less expensive -- also less quality -- glass in recent years.

These are NOT borosilicate glass, as Pyrex used to be made with in the US. The Europeans still get the good glass, but our corporate overlords have borked us once again.

Only just discovered that the Pyrex brand name was sold a decade ago, to a company that decided to drop the original glass formulation. So this isn't borosilicate glass anymore! 

It's true the Corning sold the brand but not entirely true that this prompted the switch to soda lime glass. At least some Pyrex has been made from tempered soda lime glass for many decades. http://www.snopes.com/food/warnings/pyrex.asp

There are trade offs and it's not quite as simple as saying one is better. Borosilicate is better at handling temperature changes, but soda lime glass can hold up better to impacts.
