What does Jailbreaking do for you exactly?

Anything that you want.

And maybe some things you don't.

It lets you tweak and install apps on your phone in ways Apple doesn't want. It installs a App Store like 3rd party store called Cydia where you can get the jailbroken apps.

You can do small tweaks and keep your iOS device mostly stock, or you can go hog wild and tweak almost everything. The more you tweak the more you can introduce bugs and inconsistencies. Jailbreaking isn't as big of a deal nowadays, than when it first started, because Apple incorporates a lot of jailbreak features in their own iOS releases.

ios 8.4 is supposed to come out tomorrow morning. if apple patches the jailbreak exploit, it'll be a tight window for installation!

i restored and re-jailbroke my iphone 5 to 8.3 from 8.1 with great success this weekend. and in the process freed up 3GB of space!!
