FormBuilder is popular because is an older and stable project. It doesn't
seem very active anymore though.

FormFu is popular among the Catalyst community because it is has a more
modern design and an active community. It's API might not be as stable
though. Since it has a more modular design it seems easier to extend and
people are implementing extra layers of lazyness (abstraction) on top of it.
For example the ability to automagically get/set values from a DBIx::Class
Catalyst model.
