No, it's not. You can integrate /anything/ if you wish, but the question is,
what will be gained. A file managers can be tied to or combined with and S/FTP
client, but that's not at all the Web (as in rendering), but just a protocol
for file exchange (like network browsing).
Recall Gates' deposition tapes. It spoke volumes.
~~ Best of wishes
