Why bridge rectifier is more popular?

Why is a Full Wave bridge rectifier better than a Full Wave Tapped center rectifier?. The PIV rating (inverse voltage weight) of the diodes in the bridge rectifier is the half that is required in a Full Wave Tapped center rectifier. The diode used in the bridge rectifier has the ability to withstand a high inverse peak voltage.
