_spPageContextInfo variable provides few properties which will be useful in JavaScript and client object model code.
_spPageContextInfo is a  JavaScript/jquery context variable, which will rendered for each SharePoint page. _spPageContextInfo holds few proprieties which will be useful in JavaScript/jquery and client object model code. If you want to know the properties of _spPageContextInfo, go to view page source and find text with "_spPageContextInfo".

When It will be useful:
- When we are making any ajax calls, we might need the server URL dynamically. In this case we can use _spPageContextInfo.siteAbsoluteUrl property. 

- If you want to know the current SharePoint List GUID, use _spPageContextInfo.pageListId.

- Even it has more properties also(which are self explanatory). We can use them according to the requirements.
Sample Code:
                beforeSend: function (request) {
                    request.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/json;odata=verbose;charset=utf-8");
                url: _spPageContextInfo.siteAbsoluteUrl +"/_api/search/query?querytext='" + request.term + "*'&sourceid='b09a7990-05ea-4af9-81ef-edfab16c4e31'&rowlimit='20'&selectproperties='FirstName,AccountName,PictureURL,SipAddress,PreferredName,Country,City'",
                dataType: "json",
                success: function (data) {
                    response($.map(data.d.query.PrimaryQueryResult.RelevantResults.Table.Rows.results, function (item) {
                        return {
                            fields: getFields(item.Cells.results)
                error: function (data) {
                    alert('search error');
