Share vs Explorer

So I have been evaluating Alfresco for about a month and am beginning to get my head around it and how to configure/customize/extend it. However, the one piece that I am really struggling with is the difference between Alfresco Share and Alfresco Explorer. Why is there a distinction between these two web applications? When is it appropriate to add content to the Explorer and when is it appropriate to use Share? We are looking to replace an existing content management and workflow system with Alfresco and as such, will be doing quite a lot of heavy customization. We have a complex workflow model for creating, reviewing, editing and disseminating documents.

Any insight as to the difference between these two interfaces would be invaluable.
