Silabs with their CP21XX offer more functionality, no external crystal need and some of the chips have 4 GPIOs - the price is about the half :) The only disadvantage might be the QFN package vs TSOP that is more suitable for prototyping.

It is about ubiquitous of USB interface. If you need to use UART interface, just for debugging, the USB-UART bridge will help you. And there is not any crystal. I dreamed about this solution a few month ago.

Wow, this part reads like a blast from the past. It is expensive, has very small buffers, and a limited Baud choice. Pretty much everyone else has moved on to Fractional Baud rate generation, and higher baud rates.
