Right, not everybody has 16GB of ram. There are people wanting to use QtCreator
also in poorer country, or simply students or non-pro, with cheaper hardware.
Or sometimes even it can be convenient to debug with QtCreator running on the
embedded target machine.
Not saying anything pro or against QtWebEngine: Just saying that, in general,

wasting memory. (A 20% increase is not negligible)
