Unless you have your own whitelist that references local resources, you still need Internet. Chromecast loads its apps "from the cloud."

There really isn't much, but I think it is just a thing people like me who root things and hack for a hobby enjoy doing. Maybe in the future it will be more useful, but as of right now, it isn't that useful.

Strange, I swear I replied to this, it must've got lost in the Ether(net).

See Root Mini-FAQ.
Mainly it's the ability to use custom whitelist or Team-Eureka whitelist, which probably isn't of much interest to non-developers, and the ability to specify DNS, which is a pretty big one if you're using a service to access content outside of your ISP's region.
