    I have some issues with QtWebKit (and last time I checked, I needed last version, but maybe it's worse now, and QtWebEngine is mandatory?)... I'll retry to build it latter.

    @ptitSeb : I think that QtWebEngine is not mandatory (yet):

    https://github.com/OtterBrowser/otter-browser/commit/8803c9a1a140efe4cad148f7eda23f48268d0e45

    Looks like it's only necessary if you decide to enable the experimental QtWebEngine backend.

    On a side note, QtWebKit seems to be deprecated, in favor of QtWebEngine. There's a project aiming at reviving it though:

    https://github.com/annulen/webkit

    It also fits our use case quite well IMHO ;)
