It isn't the common term anymore. To avoid ambiguity, you can use
harfbuzz-ng. However, when you see the term "harfbuzz" these days you
*should* assume the reference is to harfbuzz-ng. e.g.

It seems like for some scripts text layout will be done by Pango
(GNU/Linux) and Uniscribe (MS Windows). You can double check this by
seeing if Pango is linked to the relevant Firefox binary.
