First, it's what your visitor's browser records in its Bookmark list (Netscape) or Favorites folder (Internet Explorer) if he marks the page, so an informative title will jog his memory later about the nature of your site. Second, Internet search programs read the title for indexing and retrieval purposes, and presumably you want your site to show up in their lists.
