Do brifters shift triples well?

After shifting with Shimano bar-ends for more than three decades, I'm going to give brifters a try. I know brifters will shift the rear derailer well, but I use a triple in the front (42-37-24) and I recall reading at some point that indexed brifters were tricky with triples. Any truth to that?

If brifters aren't great, I can try a Gevenalle lever, which has a bar-end/downtube shift lever mounted on the brake lever, or just leave the current bar-end in service. Comments welcome. Thanks.
