What's Occam's Razor?

I know it's a philosophical principle, i.e., simple explanation is often correct, but what's the origin of this saying? What is the principle often used to describe? Thanks.

Update:

我懂 Ocaam's Razor 的意思,但我不懂的是... 明明可以叫 Occam's principle,為什麼要提他的 razor 呢...?!

    If there are more than one way of figuring out a thing, use the simple one.Occam's Razor only comes into practice when a sufficient theory has something added to it which does not improve its predictive power.  Occam's Razor neatly cuts these additional theoretical elements away.比喻他的中心想法: 把多餘的 不需要的 切除http://www.answers.com/Occam's%20Razor
