Okay, thanks :-)
In order to use the engine with Synchrotron I would need to compile each class 
into its own shared library, install these libraries into the plug-ins 
directory together with a desktop file?
That's what I got from code I looked at.

That's a nice idea. It would depend on the default browser set in the global

Yes, rekonq uses the same. I'll rename it to "kde".

Thanks :-)
