Can Omega 2+ run a web browser like firefox?

I just want to know if a Onion Omega 2+ can run a web browser app, I want to use my Omega to upload video's to youtube and so on. I have seen some tutorials to get transmission (bittorrent) up and running but I cannot find any browser related info really. I want to use the SD Card as an external storage to save the files on and I wan to share the directory as well.

In theory, it it is possible, and the system has more resources than those used in the early days of the web... but practically it is not sensible - there isn't sufficient memory to deal with modern heavyweight web design, and there's really no graphical or human interface system to speak of. You would have a huge project to undertake, with essentially no support as the people who could help would think it was a bad idea, and even when finished the result would be disappointing.
If you want to use this type of platform you should probably stick to script and textual type tools; if you want a GUI pick instead something based on a tablet, or phone chipset or (if you don't mind occasionally re-imaging an SD card) perhaps a raspberry pi.

How about a text-based browser like Links?

@Leif-Bloomquist , you could include the lede repos and search about it!

I have a valid use case here:
Any updates on this? Did any of you get a web browser installed?
