It’s about capacity. A crosscut sled is limited on board width. A slider can push through an entire sheet of plywood in some cases, making the traditional fence pretty useful with only long, skinny boards. Sliders can be used quite often for both crosscutting and ripping.

It’s also more safe because your hand doesn’t have to approach the blade.
