research rounded tenons and floating tenons. i believe, the standard historical basis on square mortise and tenons is because of the use of hand tools. rounded seems more practical if you will be using power tools.
from what i gathered, there is not “strength” difference from square to rounded. which also applies to floating tenons. if i were to be doing 10+ mortise and tenons on power tools, i would definitely consider floating tenons.
