Not in do-14. On Windows the browser doesn't scale properly on hi-dpi
displays and it doesn't always behave. There are a number of fixes coming
in DP-15 though. I'm trying to put a private beta out next week that uses
the browser and it looks like DP-15 will have the fixes needed.

You have to switch to the browse tool to see the contents of the browser.
Did you try that?
