Microsoft evades Microsoft prior art in Ex parte CUTSINGER


As to a claim such as

A method for browsing files comprising;

receiving a user request to view files meeting one or more criteria in a browser;
identifying a plurality of files that meet said criteria;
selecting one of a plurality of predefined browsers based on results of said step of identifying, wherein characteristics that differentiate the selected browser from other browsers of said plurality are characteristics based on the utilized criteria of said user request; and
displaying said selected browser with information regarding said plurality of files, wherein said information is based on said one or more criteria.

Microsoft dodged Microsoft art [ Bott et al., Microsoft Windows XP Inside Out, Microsoft Press, 2001 ] to evade an obviousness rejection.
