butter in saucepan till the milk solids brown??

For any bakers out there:

I'm wondering what function it serves when you melt butter in a saucepan till the milk solids brown???

Its used in a base for a plum tart with a couple of tablespoons of flour and heavy cream. what's the difference between such melted butter and using the browned one?

source: from chez panisse fruit, the santa rosa plum tart
