Older digital video (DV) cameras and some external HDDs use(d) Firewire. It was part of Apple's thing back in the late 80s/early 90s for connecting consumer appliances to Apple PCs.

Many new cases still do have it. It's just for convenience since it was such a common protocol for enthusiast devices a few years back. I don't have that hooked up on the front of my case, but the same goes for my HD audio, USB 3.0, and e-SATA.
