        Me neither, but without this, the approach taken by developers would probably be to embed a Qt WebView component which might be worse.

            The fact that it is a Qt module is good: creating a dummy noop module and LD_PRELOADing it into misbehaving apps is a very easy hack. The other variant being dissecting the binary.
            Its a module, a tool. Don't use it.

            tbh what killed Qt for me is QML. Seemed like a good idea. I don't think it is.

                Ads on desktop apps? Pfff, they will never get me on the terminal.

                  I remember when Quickbooks started displaying ads in their Desktop app. Thats the day I stopped using Quickbooks.

                    Using RPZ lists as I already do. Only stops about 95% of ads, but it works.
                    What we will definitely need to address as community, is DoH ... because that will give control on host & domains to whoever owns the web-site.
                    And that, I cannot accept.
