Size of QtWebKit (5.5) on Mac OSX

    I mean, I look here:


    ...and it says that the dynamic shared link library file "QtWebKit" is 38MB. Is that all I'll need in order to use this component?

    Depending on what you use, you might also need QtWebKitWidgets

  • @maximo Depending on needs of your application you may create a customized build of QtWebKit without some features, which may substantially reduce binary size.
