It's kind of a file browser. When you're selecting a file from within a built in application (to send or attach etc) this is how you select it. It's native to Android Kit Kat

Why make an OS that does not have a built-in file browser? that makes no sense at all.

Is this rhetorical or do you think I work for Google?

I suppose choice is the key. Most everyday users will be opening their "files" via an app, be it a word / excel type app, or music player etc. To attach files they have this. For anything else, there's play

because they give you the opportunity to install the file browser of your choice, from the play store, instead of loading the phone up with garbage apps. go to the play store, find one you like, and install it. there are plenty of them available, free and paid.
