The Qt WebKit module uses WebKit2, but is QML only. The Qt WebKit
Widgets module uses WebKit1, but is widget-based. Qt has officially
deprecated both these modules, and there are no plans to port Qt WebKit
Widgets to use WebKit2.
The Qt WebKit module does have the WebView QML type, but it has a
severely limited API compared to QWebView. However, if your requirements
are very simple, I suppose you could use it inside a QQuickView or
something (I'm guessing a bit here, though, because I haven't used QML
very much yet).
