ECT means Electronically Controlled Transmission. It's essentially a power button. If you need a little more ooomf it will give it to you. I think it does it by slightly changing the gear ratios so that it stays in a gear longer. There really is no good reason to use it unless you need to get somewhere fast, but even then you probably won't have time to reach down and push a button. Also it will reduce your fuel economy if you use it.
