In this case, are there plans to replace xulrunner ? What are the
candidates for replacement ?
There is none that been shown to be feasible.
IE/webkit all either
given to bad a performance or required a complete rewrite of all the JSF
template handling code.
To be clear, all the source editing, palette dnd etc. will still be
there - it is just the visual part
that we will deprecate and eventually remove.
We focused on getting good HTML5 preview support instead - html5 have
the advantage of not requiring
custom template code to be previewed.

Be warned that the palette and visual jsf editing is being phased
