A common requirement for web applications is to expose partial results from a larger set of data. Maybe you want your users to be able to browse through a collection of movies that they can stream. But you don't want to display all of the thousands of movie titles you have available, just the first twenty titles in the category the user is browsing through. This avoids overloading your users with information and avoids the significant performance and bandwidth costs associated with sending large chunks of data.
