QT these days is written in a JavaScript-esqe language and runs a modified WebKit to power the UI. It's as bad as it sounds.

That's wrong.

QML has two mode: one "interpreted" ( the javascript-esque) and one that can be compiled to native C++ without js.

And WebKit / webview itself is a plugin for Qt, it is absolutely not required.

... that is entirely false. Qt has its own scene graph renderer which has nothing to do with WebKit.
