Good point. I was going off of the chromium bug report. My bad.  I
mistook Spyder for Selenium, which is a web scraping scripting engine
that does use a real browser.  Oops.

However, for better or worse, browser engines power all kinds of apps
these days, including IDEs. I do not know if Spyder is powered by
Chromium or not.  VS Code, for example,  is powered by a web browser engine.

As to Eric and Qt, I can't speak to that.
