Blazor | Free and Open-Source Web Framework

Blazor is a Single Page Application development framework. The name Blazor is a combination/mutation of the words Browser and Razor (the .NET HTML view generating engine). The implication is that instead of having to execute Razor views on the server in order to present HTML to the browser, Blazor is capable of executing these views on the client.

Blazor lets you build interactive web UIs using C# instead of JavaScript. Blazor apps are composed of reusable web UI components implemented using C#, HTML, and CSS. Both client and server code is written in C#, allowing you to share code and libraries. Blazor is a feature of ASP.NET, the popular web development framework that extends the .NET developer platform with tools and libraries for building web apps.

Blazor uses open web standards without plugins or code transpilation. Blazor works in all modern web browsers, including mobile browsers.

Code running in the browser executes in the same security sandbox as JavaScript frameworks. Blazor code executing on the server has the flexibility to do anything you would normally do on the server, such as connecting directly to a database.

Why should we use Blazor?

There are couple of strong reasons, which indicate why we should use Blazor: 
1. WebAssembly is supported by all major browsers
2. Use C# for interactive web applications
3. Reuse existing libraries
4. Performance is near native
5. Tooling and debugging

Blazor WebAssembly:

Blazor WebAssembly runs on the client in the browser . It downloads everything that it needs to the browser including HTML, CSS, maybe some JavaScript, and possibly images. It also downloads the assemblies that make up the application, and it even downloads the complete .NET runtime that is converted into WebAssembly bytecode. All of this runs completely on WebAssembly, which is a part of all major web browsers, including mobile browsers. This type of Blazor application doesn't need a connection to a server. It just needs to load into the browser, and that's it. A Blazor WebAssembly app consists out of static files, so you don't need a full-fledged server to get this to the browser. You could host the static files on a content delivery network, or CDN, which is relatively cheap and is globally performant. You can also host it on a server in the cloud, in your own data center, or anywhere else. 

Advantages:

Near-Native Performance, runing your app on webassemble is fast. 
App can work completely offline.
No Server Needed, you do not have to maintain the server and keep architecture simple. it require resource processing at client device
No Plugin required, WebAssembly is native part of all major browsers. it takes all static files into browser 
Run in all Modern Browsers 

Blazor Server:

Blazor Server is a server-side Blazor app. App runs inside an ASP.NET website that runs on the .NET runtime. This website then serves the Blazor website and loads Blazor through a WebSocket connection that it uses through SignalR. Using this, UI updates are streamed from the server in real time. This sounds complicated, but you don't have to do anything special to make this work. This all comes out of the box.

Advantages:

Less downloading and loads fast.
Complete ASP.NET Framework.
WebAssembly not needed.
Server Side Keys or Secrets are Safe to use.
