Microsoft has announced a new experimental project from ASP.NET called Blazor, which is a web UI framework. It is based on C#, Razor and HTML, and it runs in the browser via WebAssembly. Blazor allows developers to write client-side .NET-based apps, and greatly simplifies the process of building fast single-page applications that will run in any browser, according to Microsoft.
“Web development has improved in many ways over the years but building modern web applications still poses challenges,” the company wrote in a post. “Using .NET in the browser offers many advantages that can help make web development easier and more productive.”
