In online video games, mostly FPS, it is where players will try to pad stats or earn exp as quickly as possible. For example, in Modern Warfare 2, people will play Search and Destroy or Free for All with other people and just let each other get a lot of points off of each other, thus ranking them up higher. In other games, such as Halo 3, people will boost for achievements. Boosting is looked down upon because it shows that the person isn't skilled enough and/or too impatient to rank up the legit way. Basically, if you boost, you are a loser.
MW2 Booster: Ok so does everyone have a Riot Shield with Tactical Insertion and One Man Army on?
Other boosters: Yeah, we're ready.
Me: *runs around killing all the noob boosters while they don't suspect it*
Booster: Hey stop, we're trying to do something!
Me: You guys are losers for boosting. Get a life and play the game the way it was meant to be played!
