Those are not doubts, but questions.  Doubts are like:  I doubt you  
have gone to the webkit wiki where there is a doc that while it  
doesn't have much can get you started. http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/QtWebKitHacking

Short answer to #1 & #2 is that QNetworkAccessManager (from Qt) does  
that actual IO.  Valgrind, docs and code browsing are good for the rest.
