By default, SQL Browser is installed with the Express editions, and since thats always a named instance this is always being required!! There are many non-DBAs who could accidentally disable this service and face trouble in connecting to their instances..

by the way, it appears that we can disable the browser service and instead always use the server name along with the port number for connecting to the SQL instance (from within the application).
