Do we need to initialize QWebcore to load the stylesheet fast for the first

In UI app, user stylesheet is being set from child or worker pthread where
QApplication instance is created unlike sample app. Not sure if it makes
any difference in applying the stylesheet though.

Inorder to debug further in Qtwebkit sources and use QWebInspector with
UIApp, do we need to use Debug mode in cmake build type?

Thanks and Regards,
