When my browsing and downloading is "encrypted," who or what am I protecting myself from?

Who or what exactly would or could intercept unencrypted browsing, downloads, or submitted form information? Is it my ISP? Is it a trojan on my computer? Is it a port-scanning hacker? Is it someone on my LAN monitoring traffic? What exactly does browser encryption protect me from?
