Dowels have got a bad rap. The size and number of dowels
should be matched to the mass of the piece and expectations
of the joint. I doubt they often outperform M&T in terms of
resistance to abuse, but in most furniture applications they
can work very well and hold up too the design is sound and
the dowels glued well.
