The Qt5.4.0/Examples/QtWebView/1.0/webview example runs also on desktop,
at least on linux.   So something is used to make it run there.

Although trying to use it in my own application gave me a segfault 
somewhere in OpenGL, while on Android it did work.

Btw. I think the name should be changed from WebView, as it is now will 
cause endless confusion in discussions and search engines.
