Faster. Less kruft. Drops many near-EOL cryptos. But the main one is that is allows Perfect
Forward Secrecy (PFS) which means that even is someone captures the traffic and stores it,
and even if they interfere with the traffic actively at the time of communication, and then
at some later time gets access to the private keys used by the client and the server, they
STILL can't decrypt it.

This is kind of the holy grail in cryptography.
