Multicast is the opposite of unicast - which is what you normally do, when you browse a web or send an email. It allows a "one-to-many" relationship, just like broadcasting. It actually is broadcasting... more efficient as there is no handshake to determine if packets are sent successfully.

Not much use out on the public internet, but very handy within your local network... or on the same computer.
