Discussion on: Should you pick C# over JS? Maybe.

Traditionally JS is used for browser / client side interactivity and data manipulation C# is middleware and intercepts the HTTP GET/POST calls and does something with them. The lines are more blurred now becase you can run JS on the server in node, I am not aware of a native implementatin of C# in a browser. You can compile to web assemby but that is a different topic altogether. JS is front end code, C# is middleware

LOL. Blazor is C# running in the browser using web assembly.

Is that the thing which needs to download the .Net runtime into the browser in order to work?
