I don't know if I'd go that far. It's a tool, not a magic bullet. It can help with first byte times only if you make your base page edge-cachable, otherwise the app owner and origin host are still responsible. Otherwise it can also work as a very effective CDN but only if you're at the point where a CDN will help.
At which point, when you have optimized your site you really don't need CF.

What you said about "magic bullet" is exactly how CF markets itself. It does you no good at all if your site is terrible, or even marginal - and if your site is optimized you don't need it. It's just a hoax. I used it for two years and never got TTFB decent until I dumped it and, optimized my sites.

And they tell people nothing can be done to improve TTFB and that's demonstrably false.
