Other important changes include :
- Based on Chromium 56.0.2924.122 with security fixes from Chromium up to version 58.0.3029.96. (5.8.0 was based on Chromium 53.0.2785.148 with security fixes from Chromium up to version 55.0.2883.75.)
- [QTBUG-54650, QTBUG-59922] Accessibility is now disabled by default on Linux, like it is in Chrome, due to poor options for enabling it conditionally and its heavy performance impact. Set the environment variable `QTWEBENGINE_ENABLE_LINUX_ACCESSIBILITY` to enable it again.
- [QTBUG-56531] Enabled `filesystem:` protocol handler.
- [QTBUG-57720] Optimized incremental scene-graph rendering in particular for software rendering.
- [QTBUG-60049] Enabled brotli support.
- Many bug fixes, see https://code.qt.io/cgit/qt/qtwebengine.git/tree/dist/cha nges-5.9.0?h=5.9 for details.
In addition, this build includes a fix for https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-61521 , a binary incompatibility in QtWebEngine 5.9.0 compared to 5.8.0.
