allows more air in though the front windows b/c the air has a way out in the back of the car

I'm not sure there's enough room back there for up/down. I agree with Andres: better ventilation when used in combination with fronts.01 Alpine/Cinnamon 6 spd manual

My main use of them is to leave them cracked open on hot days if I have to park in the sun. It keeps cabin temps down to tolerable levels, yet seems to pose minimal security or unexpected-rain risk.

I crack them when I open the front windows fully. It seems to decrease the turbulence inside the car.

If the windows are closed or just slightly opened, though, I crack the sunroof instead if I want a little more airflow.

Opening the driver-side rear window improves the air flow through the cabin. With both rear windows closed, both opened, or just the passenger-side rear open, the flow of air on the driver's head/face is more turbulent.

The one touch down is great, but what about one touch up? It's a royal pain to have to watch my rearview mirrors to see when the rear windows are closed. Yeah I know about the pinch hazard, but the front windows can get a neck caught while the rears are just fingers sized.
