Blazor brought component-based UI architecture to ASP.NET, and now Astro is bringing client/server/partial runtime abilities back to JS frameworks. In a way they're both becoming the same thing with different language stacks.

Well, if you filter TechEmpower's latest benchmark to .Net and Nodejs as the platforms, ASP.Net Core is over 3x faster than the fastest Nodejs base framework. Considering that Blazor can be run either server-side or client side, it looks to me like Astro is just a pretender in the making.

There's a lot more to this than just performance, especially TechEmpower's backend requests-per-second throughput tests which have nothing to do with UI components or interactivity. Both are great projects with their own advantages and ecosystems.

The backend speed determines how users perceive the responsiveness of the site. That matters. Alot.
