(Whiteboard: [geckoview:p3])

Actually, we use OS's line breaker functions for complex languages such as Thai.

But, since Android has no OS API (Android 7+ has ICU API), we use rule based breaker for Thai. But according to https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/reference-browser/issues/756, it is better to use any library for Thai/Khmer etc or to use OS API (ICU?)

Maybe related, bug 1423593

Severity: normal → S3

We use ICU4X instead. East Asian languages are followed.
