By clicking on the name of a group you will be changing its color from green to red. This indicates that all the plugins which are contained within that group will be turned off. There are several different uses for something like this, for example you could place in one group all the Chrome extensions which are blocking ads, java, javascript and flash and if you want to switch them off, you don’t have to turn them off one by one.

You can do the same for every other group of plugins which you can group according to your wishes and then simply turn them off at the same time, and just as easily turn them all back on, if you’re using Chrome install Extensioner for easier extension management.
