No.  Some options are:

1a) Create an app in which a user can enter a URL and then launch the URL
within a browser.

1b) Related to option 1 above: have the user establish a Rev app as a helper
app for their browser.  Then establish a "home" link or similar that auto
launches your Rev app when linked to via the browser which in turn allows
launching of a URL (a bit demanding but doable).

2) Take a look at Chip Walter's Leo at which allows embedding
of a browser within the Win version of Rev.

3) Look into Flash to create a browser-based keyboard/launcher.
