When I push TAB on Minecraft servers it comes up with a little green connection bar next to the players' names! What does this mean?

The green bars represent the strength of a player's connection to the server.

What do you mean by "strength"? –  deadly Nov 5 '12 at 9:26
It means how strong it is. –  nerd4life123 Nov 20 '12 at 15:11

It represents how good each player's latency (ping) to the server is. The fuller the bars, the lower (and better) the latency.

It's The Players Internet connection, Its How Fast The Players Internet is, When its full its fast... When its low its slow,

Eeeeh...it's the player's connection to the server, not their internet connection. Just nitpicking though! :) –  Alex May 14 '13 at 8:08

It's the player's internet connection, it's like a WIFI bar; it describes what players are online.
