It is great to see there is constantly so much work going into Qt
Quick - hopefully at some point soon we will be able to use it for
QGIS desktop as well where it is appropriate - e.g. welcome page or
plugin manager.

even 5.9 brought plenty of goodies that we can try to integrate:

Another exciting thing on the list of 5.10 features is the technical
preview of "Qt WebGL Streaming Plugin" - a way to stream applications
to browsers over network - QGIS in the cloud!
