Can I search for movie titles on Roku using a web browser?

On my Roku/TV I can search for a movie by title and look at the various channels and options on which it might be available.

On the Roku.com web browser, is there a capability to perform a similar search?  I could not find it.

Mine (Android version) comes up with the Roku Channel pre-selected at the bottom.  In the upper right corner is a magnifying glass icon superimposed over the picture.  Clicking this brings up the search dialog.

You cannot search for movie titles at Roku website using your browser. You can only search for Channels they support.

Mea culpa.  Actually, it's "Not even close to UNDERSTANDING the question."

OP asked "On the Roku.com web browser, is there a capability to perform a similar search?  I could not find it.".   There is no such thing as a Roku.com web browser, and we frequently get people on here that use the wrong names for things, so that didn't seem unusual.  Don't know why I didn't think of the (now obvious) possibility he was talking about using a web browser to go to Roku.com, especially since it is spelled out pretty well in the thread title.   But instead I figured the question was about the Roku mobile app and I answered accordingly.   Anyway, now he should know of a way to do his search not involving his TV or Roku unit, which is sort of what he asked for.
