I don't think there is anything using Qt, but IMHO it would be great to get 
Firefox mobile into PA.

The current mobile variants of Firefox are probably not well suited, but the 
tablet UI which is IIRC still under development might be useable to us[1]. But 
if it is done with only Android or iPhone in mind, it is possible that it is 
less work to implement an own browser than to integrate Firefox.
