Why Qt5.7.0_MinGW have no QtWebEngine module?
The Qt WebEngine document says since Qt5.4 there has QtWebEngine module in the SDK, but until I installed Qt5.7 MSVC2015 SDK, I could find Qt5WebEngine.dll in MSVC package (I usually use Windows & MinGW to work). May I have the reason why this module not working for MinGW or it may need users to compile first?
QtWebEngine is based on Chromium project. Chromium doesn't compile with MinGW so by extension QtWebEngine doesn't either.
But if there has any way to use Chromium project via using MinGW to compile? I think Chrome(Chromium) could run with any system platform...
Like @Chris-Kawa wrote, the Chromium project currently officially supports only Visual Studio on Windows.
If they were to add MinGW, again officially, then the module would be available for that platform as well.
En.. I have understood currently, Thanks a lot!
Thanks to Qt and my support will carry on!
Bytheway, if I use MinGW to compile a program which needs a webBrowser widget, Which module should I use except "Windows ActiveX Plugin"?
I'd take a look at @Konstantin-Tokarev's QtWebkit reboot.

FWIW, we support MinGW with revived QtWebKit now (not all patches were integrated to qtwebkit-stable branch yet, and no binary releases are available yet, but these all is coming soon)
