Well, indeed ss is a good utility to investigate sockets; it can
do many things that netstat does.
However, there are some functionalities of netstat which are missing
in ss (and probably will not be added in future, due to the nature of
ss utility).

For example, netstat can show also interface statistics, multicast
memberships, masquerade connections and more.

For example, showing forwarded packets with netstat is done by:
netstat -s | grep   forwarded
    0 forwarded

Showing multicast addresses is done by:
netstat -g

IPv6/IPv4 Group Memberships
Interface       RefCnt Group
