Qt 5 QtWebengine status
31.08.2020
To show some progress, we thought it's time to publish finnaly the already announced screenshots. In the below screenshots you see how good the html5 rendering scores. Looking at html5test results, we're not that bad actually, better than the current Firefox (not the old version 45 we have on OS/2, but the current upstream one). And just slightly worse than Chrome, perhaps due to some missing OS integration.
The app we test with, is a QtWebengine test app called Qt Simple Browser.
