Advantages: 
- the config is human-friendly, and uniform across any BSD version unlike iptables's non-standardised config and the non-human-readable iptables-save output
- it has a clean and intuitive, natural language-like syntax, its rules equivalent to iptables' tend to be much shorter and easier to understand by newbies(also see Ubuntu's ufw)
- the config file can be checked for syntax correctness before being applied
- provides an integrated shaper
Disadvantages:
Not Invented Here or license divergence that caused a rewrite instead of using/porting existing software. You can also see Alsa vs. Open Sound System, BTRFS vs ZFS.  :lol:
