Nope. The Roku3 is designed to display videos and that does not mean it is powerful enough for a functional modern web browser. The Roku has hardware acceleration for video decoding and the cpu is quite slow compared to a modern computer or modern smartphone. A $100 device will not have the latest high performance cpu technology.. sorry.

Roku 3 for Pokémon TV / YouTube
PC / Chromecast for all other media because Roku Mirroring sucks and and the every day re-authenticating via PC required with the Roku.
