Don't know about Qt, but the GTK one is more like "a document display
widget that happens to use HTML tags to annotate text". It can do
colour, for instance. But layout is basically just flowing text; you
can't plop down a <div> and have separate flow layout boxes. It's a
far cry from a modern web browser. Even just rendering a static web
page (no JS, no links, no events, no CSS) would be a long way beyond
it.
