    Web runtime widgets are meant for simple, website-like apps and data driven applications. That do not require huge amount of processor power from the device. Qt is a full featured, cross platform application framework, developed using one of the best development environments there is, Qt Creator.

    If you want rapid app development, I suggest you go with Qt Quick, not WRT.

    if you are new to Qt and new to web development, you should take Risalmin advice...

    I am for example a web developer, and WRT seems natural to me... and works very good for me... in 1 year published 35 apps
