What is "follow some connections" supposed to mean?

PF needs no front-end, it is an incredibly elegant syntax, and probably easier to learn the syntax than to learn a front-end... Besides, I have heard of one front-end for PF, I have no doubt there are more.

PF certainly has load-balancing.

In addition to authpf, and normalization, PF has a modulate state option, very good performance, and all sorts of features are being added... practically daily.

I can't say any more about the differences, because I haven't used any non-OpenBSD options in quite some time.
