What crops to mind are:

* Grip on 'motion granularity', e.g. mouse scrolling, which PageUp and PageDn
cannot achieve quite so well.

* Highlighting of text that exceeds a screen-full.

* Breakdown into multiple windows, possibly assigning each to a separate
virtual desktop

* Among more...

You will find it rather hard to convince me otherwise.

With kind regards,
