BTW: The developer announced in the release note that:

QupZilla will in future be ported to QtWebEngine, which will (amongst other improvements) bring multi-process architecture.
With QtWebEngine comes dependency on Qt 5, which means older platforms may not be supported.
QupZilla on QtWebEngine will be new major version 2.x.x and I hope it will be ready with Qt 5.3 (or Qt 5.4), depending on Qt devs.
