Seems like this post is actually about actix-web, not actix itself.
I was debating how to describe it. The heading on the documentation page and in the title tag of the documentation say “Actix”. The original actor framework is still being maintained but there were just too many other areas of the documentation and instances in GitHub issues where “Actix” was presumed to mean the web framework.
One poster on Reddit has been trying to lobby for actix-web to be renamed for some time now: https://www.reddit.com/r/rust/comments/q2o66e/actix_a_web_framework_for_rust/hfmvk59/?utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=web2x&context=3
