It helps simplify the design of the application.
You can tell what it does just by looking at the URL structures.

Also there are search engine optimization benefits to it.

@niheel Do you know where I can find more resources on this at? Can you compare the differences between embedding key-value pairs and the GET parameters in more detail? Examples of these comparison with a link source would be great.
