No, there is basically no advantage to the browser plugin. It used to be that the browswer plugin was more networked than acroread, for things like hyperlinks outbound from the pdf back to the web. But acroread has sprouted sufficient tentacles to fill in such gaps.
The plugin has become a clunkier, crashier acroread that takes out your browser with it.
