Hyphenation is particularly useful when line length is limited: in columns, but especially on mobile devices which have limited screen space.
Another situation where hyphenation is really improving the looks of your site is in combination with justified text. Without hyphenation, justified text frequently causes ugly ‘rivers’ of white space.
Although browser support may not be great yet, it is expect that to grow soon. And: nothing goes wrong if a browser doesn’t show any hyphenation – the text will show as it did for many years.
