Nofollow is an HTML attribute that instruct search engines spiders/crawlers to not follow (crawl) a particular web page.
Benefits? Well, I guess... its main benefit has something to do with the word "PRIVACY". Imagine this... if there will be no "nofollow" attribute, everything will be crawled... even the messages (PMs) in your forums accounts will be seen by other Internet users.

For your kind information Nofollow links are crawled by Google but Google does not count that link for ranking purpose but for traffic purpose you can also do Nofollow comment.

This differs from the meaning of nofollow as used within a robots meta tag, which does tell a search engine: "Do not follow" ...and do follow are those which tells search engine robots to follow this hyperlink

nofollow is an HTML attribute value used to instruct some search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target's ranking in the search engine's index. But the link can gain a traffic. That is the benefit of no-follow links.
