Biscuits allow a sloppy fit which is nice is certain applications like edge gluing. They do not provide as much strength as dowels or tenons so cannot be used in high stress applications like chairs. I have never had a problem with swelling but apparently it is something to be careful about. A biscuit is not the equivalent of a spline or floating tenon and should not be used in place of either.
