[Qtwebengine] Running Chrome Apps in QtWebEngine

Hi Renaud,

Unfortunately, we don't have support for any of Chrome's extensions' API in
QtWebEngine at the moment.
While we didn't rule out the possibility entirely, a number of features
wouldn't even necessarily make sense in the context of QtWebEngine
In the case of screen capture (which is not part of the WebRTC proposal
atm), this used to be behind a chrome flag, for which we had a way to
enable it (which would still prompt the end user for permission), but the
chromium folks seem to have decided to move that functionality to their
extension API to provide a nicer story for Chrome users. This would in fact
be one of the good candidates, were we to introduce some extension API.
This means we currently don't have an easy way to use Desktop capture in
QtWebEngine. I'm happy to help out in any way I can if you're considering
contributing in that area.
