By removing most of the burden of state management from the programmer.
Rather than manually passing state between pages, and then looking it up
again each time, continuations and callbacks can be used to tie actions
together more naturally and urls are automagically generated for links that
use this feature.

However, you can still do everything the old fashioned way should you prefer
it.  The request and all its parameters are readily available.  Urls can be
generated any way you like via #addToPath:.  The current path is also
readily available.  You can use meaningful urls if you like, Seaside only
gives you more options, it's not taking anything away.
