      Description

      I read in http://qt-project.org/wiki/QtWebEngine in the Windows, "MSVC" is necessary to compile to work with the "Chromium".

      Details (http://qt-project.org/wiki/QtWebEngine):

      Windows (MSVC 2013 packages).

      And QtWebkit will no updates (http://qt-project.org/wiki/New-Features-in-Qt-5.4):

      The Qt WebKit module is considered done. It will in future be replaced by Qt WebEngine.

      Should be discouraged from developing using "MingW"?

      I suggest two ways:
      Continue the support QtWebKit in parallel to QtWebEngine.

      OR

      Discontinue MingW in QT.

      Note: Unless you say that in the future it is likely that the "Chromium" has plans to support "MingW" (or MingW evolve and support the necessary dependancy) then disregard this suggestion.
