[webkit-dev] QtWebkit vs GtkWebkit

Yes, I have tried this on several versions of Ubuntu, including Lucid.
I don't have Windows machine so I can't try that. There is not a single instance of a QtWebKit browser (or my own snippet of QtWebKit code) that works - and 100% of every GtkWebKit browsers (and my own snippet of GtkWebKit code) that works on my Linux system.

This is forcing me to create a hybrid application written in Qt, with the webkit portion being handled in Gtk - which, I am sure I don't need to inform anyone, is a royal pain in the ass.

If I am missing something obvious, I would appreciate a hint.

I don't see this in Windows (Using latest arora 0.10.0). Are you using Linux?

After a frustrating number of hours, I finally discovered a problem with QtWebkit (and all browsers derived from it: Arora, Konqueror, etc.) - when trying to play a video in youtube.com/xl, they all display a white screen. I had this problem in my application and spent many hours beating my head against the wall before discovering that I wasn't doing anything wrong.
