Probably not one you'd want to use.  The circuitry and capabilities weren't designed for it.

Years ago there used to be one or two third party attempts but they didn't work worth a darn and died a quick death.  My Samsung smart tv came with a browser app that was next to unuseable.

I'd suggest browsing using the browser on a phone or tablet and mirroring or casting your device to the Roku tv.

Thanks for the posts.

As previously stated, Roku devices and TVs are not capable of web browsing.


Thanks,

Is there any plan to offer one, even just to access a typed in URL rather than conduct a google search.  Vimeo will not cast to on live feeds from a "private" channel., like from my religious organization.

This is one of the main reasons FireTV/Sticks out sell Roku.  I do not know why Roku will not allow web browsers besides total control.  It is too bad as the Roku is more responsive than the FireStick and the remote performs better, but without a web browser, these items are moot.  I am going to FireStick.

Will Roku ever put an web browser app in app store to allow last year's tv to search the web?
