One of the few "bad" experiences I have with Gentoo is with compiling webengines. They are all monstruous beasts that take over my laptop for a few hours. I am forced to compile webkit-gtk because of gnucash and qtwebengine because of GoldenCheetah. My webbrowser of choice has been Firefox which uses yet another webengine. I've tried for a while to replace Firefox with another web-browser because of this. A webkit-gtk-browser is a no-go cause this will require webkit2 (which is different than the engine I am forced to have because of gnucash).

Now that I have qtwebengine in my system, I might as well use it to power my browser. I have found qupzilla, is there any other browser out there based on qtwebengine?

If you are in the unstable tree you can try Otter, (aka otter-browser).

But did you tried Qupzilla, because you ask for another one and I am currious why that is. Since I am also looking for a qtwebengine based browser and Qupzilla lookes okay to me at first glance and it is in the stable tree.

both qutebrowser and otter were based on qtwebkit, I didn't know that they had been already ported to qtwebengine. It seems otter has a backend ready, it's not clear to me how experimental is qutebrowser, I'll try them, thanks for the feedback.

It seems to me that qupzilla is the most straightforward qtwebengine browser at this point.
