Question about in-boom furling & in-mast furling

Hello everyone,
I did a quick search about this and couldn't find what I was looking for. It would seem that in-mast furling has become vastly more common than in-boom furling. There must be a reason and my question is what is that reason? I have no intention of installing either on my boat, I was merely curious.

Of course if my assessment is wrong someone please correct me on that.

Thanks in advance.
