I'm the main developer of qutebrowser, a keyboard-focused vim-like web browser,
built using Python and Qt:

qutebrowser is currently using QtWebKit, which is based on an outdated version
of the WebKit rendering engine. This comes with various stability, performance
and security issues.

I just launched a crowdfunding campaign with the goal of adding support for
QtWebEngine to qutebrowser. QtWebEngine is based on Chromium and in very active
development - support for it will fix dozens of qutebrowser bugs related to

Since this is a lot of work, I plan to work on it full-time for a month, or
even longer if possible. I'd really appreciate your help!
