The remote inspector is not supported with QWebView. WebKit in Qt 4.8 is also too old and is using the old WebSocket protocol, not supported by Chrome anymore. It might work better if you instead use a 4.8 QWebView client to load the inspection URL.

The unofficial QtWebKit 2.3 release could also be helpful if you really want to use Chrome with Qt 4.8: http://blogs.kde.org/2012/11/14/introducing-qtwebkit-23

Good luck :)
