Well, I believe 8 pages on this topic probably explains enough, or, shows enough interest, for whatever reasons, that this is something that can be useful in DSM?
For my application it will mainly be for 2 reasons:
(1) To override the corporate network of the company I work for. There's many limitations in the browser on the corporate network. E.g. I cannot access my Arlo Pro security / surveillance system running at my home and some other scenarios / sites to. Yes, Arlo has a mobile app, but the web interface is just so much quicker to use. I can access my DS916+ from the corporate network. If my DS916+ had a web browser, I could have used this as a 'proxy' to get access to stuff I don't have access on the corporate network.
(2) When you're connected to a non-secure network e.g. open wifi. If you have access to your NAS browsing would be safe. Yes you can argue to have another PC running at home, on the VPN, and connect to that, but thats exactly what I don't want to do. My NAS fulfills that role, and its Awesome in doing so.
8 pages is a lot, but not all of it is clear talk.
To describe more sharply what you're looking for:
1) You're located at work, connected to your LAN at home through a VPN
2) You wish to access the diskstation DSM through the GUI (i.e. you're using a PC at work, and a web browser)
3) While you're using the DSM GUI, you wish to be able to load a second web browser - which running on your diskstation is running from your private LAN, hence circumventing limitations at work.
Whatever you do on the diskstation web-browser, is that just looking up stuff?
Do you wish to download files - and where should these files be downloaded to ... I suppose download to a folder on your diskstation?
You can then use FileStation from your work-PC browser to copy the downloaded material to your work-PC
How close am I to your use-case?
If this circumvents e.g. security settings at work, I hope you understand that I think this is a bad idea.
