The great benefit is, that in that way you don't have to bother with rendering and display of the HTML-files because Firefox does this for you. So the limit of what is possible to display is set by Firefox and not by a special ePub-software. And I think Firefox is always at the cutting edge ...

Firefox's Zoom function works great with this add-on.

Just Ctrl + + + or Ctrl - - - to get the perfect size; rendering 'on the fly' and reflowing as expected. I can see what you meant now by letting the browser do what it was made to do.
