I just go through the MemoryPressureHandler::releaseMemory @ MemoryPressureHandlerMac.mm. Looks nice and does more than expected :)

Can we introduce one more static member function QWebSettings::releaseMemory(bool critical)? Which does exactly like mac counterpart.?

(or) Just add it inside QWebSettings::clearMemoryCache()?
