I can't say which version of WebKit is faster because this is 
confidential but Blink uses a mark and sweep type of GC, which is pretty 
much the cutting edge technology:

My point is Qt could do better because the QtQuickCompiler is already a 
good start and I'm sure the containers of the internal Javascript engine 
could make use of the root_ptr memory manager.
