Sorry, i didn’t quite phrase that well:

The decision not to sync Qt Webkit while Qt WebEngine isn’t ready to
replace it yet was a bad decision.

browsers based on Qt now have a lean period during which they can’t ship
proper functionality (newest HTML5 features, as well as cookie, request &
proxy management, dev tools)
