What is Amazon CloudFront?
Amazon CloudFront can be used to deliver your entire website, including dynamic, static, streaming, and interactive content using a global network of edge locations. Requests for your content are automatically routed to the nearest edge location, so content is delivered with the best possible performance.
What is CloudFlare?
Cloudflare speeds up and protects millions of websites, APIs, SaaS services, and other properties connected to the Internet.
What is MaxCDN?
The MaxCDN Content Delivery Network efficiently delivers your site’s static file through hundreds of servers instead of slogging through a single host. This "smart route" technology distributes your content to your visitors via the city closest to them.

I love CloudFront. All my assets are hosted by them, and they cut page load time in half, and my average bill is around $0.15/month. They're good, fast, and cheap — pick three!

Ridiculously high added fees for everything.

Their website only shows the prices for some aspects of the service, mainly just the bandwidth. But where they really get you is by charging high fees for everything else. Their basic rate only includes North America and Europe. You have to pay extra for other locations. Then hosting a subdomain costs $100 extra/month (no idea why, other CDNs do it for free), additional zones cost extra (normally free with other CDNs), no caching rules unless you pay extra, hidden fees for push data storage, etc etc.
Pathwright uses Amazon CloudFront
Parked in front of an nginx instance that serves all of our static assets. Performance and reliability have been excellent, and the header pass-through rules are wonderful. Price is affordable, as well.
chrismatheson uses Amazon CloudFront
media CDN and edge cache, poor mans reverse proxy to separate static asset traffic from application traffic from marketing traffic etc
StackShare uses Amazon CloudFront
We chose CloudFront mostly because it’s incredibly popular. But also because it’s the recommended CDN for Heroku, which means there shouldn’t be any problems using them together. Rails makes it really easy to drop in a CDN reference for your app so that when your assets get compiled, they’re shipped off to the CDN and then deployed with your app.
So anytime we push to Heroku, we’re pushing up to CloudFront (if the assets don’t already exist). One major issue we still haven’t been able to solve involves Fonts. Has anyone actually been able to get fonts served up through CloudFront using Rails 4 and Heroku? Literally spent hours researching this and can’t find any solutions. We ended up just referencing a CDN for all the font libraries.
We have a separate distribution for each environment, since I don’t think it’s possible to use the same distribution for the multiple domains.

CloudFront's easy to use in front of S3, especially for videos, which don't load reliably from S3. We've noticed latency issues with CloudFront, and so don't use it for everything, though.

We use CF for DNS hosting, since their AnyCast DNS provides the best latency in the business, and they support DNSSEC + IPv6. We don't use the CDN or website optimizations.
toolmantim uses CloudFlare
Cloudflare sits in front of the entire site providing HTTP2 and HTTPS, which is particularly important due the large number of SVG images for the headings that need to be send down to the browser in parallel. Cloudflare also manages the DNS for DKIM TXT records, a dynamic root ALIAS record to the Heroku application, and GeoIP country headers.

Cloudflare functions mostly as a simple CDN to our website. Most of requests delivered to our server don't even get through Cloudflare, and we could easily do without.

We use CloudFlare to protect our network from breaches as well as to reduce bandwidth on the servers themselves and therefore freeing up the bandwidth for our other projects. We also use CloudFlare for instant DNS propagation across the internet where possible.
