Play vs Actix: What are the differences?

Built on Akka, Play provides predictable and minimal resource consumption (CPU, memory, threads) for highly-scalable applications. On the other hand, Actix is detailed as "An actor system and web framework for Rust". It web is a simple, pragmatic and extremely fast web framework for Rust.
