I'm not a QtWebEngine developer, just someone writing a browser using
QtWebKit and also looking forward to QtWebEngine. But let me share my
thoughts about this.

The answer to all of this is probably "not yet". This means you can
either patiently wait (what I'm doing), start to contribute, or pay
other people to allow them to work on it more.

That doesn't make QtWebEngine "a bad decision". It's just not there
yet. 5.4 is the first Qt release to include QtWebEngine, you shouldn't
expect to be able to use it for too sophisticated stuff already ;)

That being said, QtWebKit is still being maintained (in terms of
bugfixes) and works just fine for me and a lot of other Qt based
browsers. Nobody said it's deprecated, and I don't expect it to be
deprecated until QtWebEngine is more advanced.
