No, LibreElec is just enough Operating System to run Kodi Multimedia Software:

Why not just run Raspbian Buster with Desktop and install Kodi Multimedia Software ???

Yes, it absolutely exists, but only for LibreELEC on Intel. It is an official addon (not in a VM).

There at least used to be a simple browser add-on which worked. Forget what it's called. But it was basically capable of rendering text, so it wasn't really suitable for real browsing but worked in an emergency when you needed to check something simple.
