It encourages highly multi-threaded apps, which used to important for responsiveness, and is now increasingly important due to consumers cpus having multiple cores.

Whether it's actually superior, I'll leave to devs who have actually developed on it. I think many have complained that it's more difficult to develop with, but perhaps give a superior end-user experience.
