If by QtWeb, you mean QtWebkit, then the Tor Project has actually
offered to pay the developer of a Tor fork of the Qt Webkit front end:

But he is quite happy continuing on as a volunteer. If torora proves
as functional and private as a forked Firefox, then we'll have to make
decisions on speed and ease of maintainance. Right now, I think it
lacks as extensive auditing and as comprehensive a featureset though.
But it is definitely moving along!
