    I'm using a MacBook Pro 8,2 - Late 2011 - OSX Mavericks 10.9.5

    Installing my new Canon PIXMA MX922 Printer/Scanner and I'm not sure which of these options to select:

    Is there a benefit for Mac OSX users to use "Bonjour Multifunction" versus "Canon IJ Network"? What's the difference?

    Depends. One is fir networked printing and the other is USB drivers with extra software.

    The Bonjoir software is a local networking protocol. So it is for networked printering.

    The USB drivers are for USB connection and they usually come with extra software for the other parts of the printer from the manufacture.
