They last longer.

IMO the only reason is that erosion is distributed across three
electrodes rather than one.  It means that they are supposed to last
three times as long, but of course you also get to drive three times
as far on crappy plugs when they _do_ reach end of life.

Also IMO - I suspect single electrode plugs changed more frequently are
a better option for the caring home mechanic - who probably has the
plugs out half a dozen times or so during their lifetime.
