is Qt C++ Qwebview faster than Qml Webview?


Hi all, I know that in general Qt C++ code is faster than QML implementation.
But particular question is – QML WebView is really slow for the need of my app and before diving into C++ again I wonder if that will give me real benefit?

The QML webview is just a wrapper around the C++ one as far as I know. So the performance should be on par.

You can see how QML WebView is implemented here []

It uses QGraphicsWebView [] and AFAIK all QGraphicsWidgets are slower than their QWidget equivalents.
