At least with the Qt port you can use  
QWebPage::acceptnavigationRequest and QNetworkAccessManager (http://doc.trolltech.com/4.4/qwebpage.html#acceptNavigationRequest 
) to get each url and loading of data from memory (Arora loads some  
pages from qrc for example).  The API could make it easier to do this  
in the future, but I think you can do it today.  If you want to mess  
around with some code checkout Arora's codebase (arora-browser.org).   
The code is small and easy enough to poke around in.  It should give  
you a feeling for what the Qt port can do and if it is good enough.
