Besides the fact that you don't need Silverlight installed to run the app, because the app has a better interface, and Search charm support, mostly.
To find a movie in the browser version you have to either manually enter the URL or open your shortcut, click on the search field, and then enter what you're looking for. With the app, you press ctrl-Q from anywhere (or swipe or use the mouse), type what you want, and then click the big Netflix button, and you're already at your list of results.
