This sounds like a big problem, but it might not be hard to fix.

Could someone give me additional information?

What does "embed engine" mean?
What jobs does it need to do?

Is it possible to use Iridium instead of Chromium?

Can you tell me the names and addreses of a few people in KDE that
it would be useful to discuss this with?
