I think there is also existing question for this as well, but not yet found it

I couldn't find one either, that's why I posted a new question. There's a similar question regarding QML TextInput, but I couldn't understand if they are the same.

I need to select text not only in forms, but also in any webpages ! I should be able to select for copy/pasting any text displayed on a page…

i agree thats a feature request where html elements are analyzed for being txt or not and selectable on the browser screen directly!
