The Roku 3 is a powerful box. Is a Web Browser App feasible?

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 / Animal Planet GO / HBO GO. Chromecast for most other media because Roku Mirroring sucks , how many clicks in Wndows 10 (about a dozen) to Miracast on Roku vs 2 with Chromecast.
