Blazor is a very interesting technology though personally, I'm not yet moving towards it. My ideal scenario with something like Blazor is having it do client-side validation where I'd normally have JavaScript and have normal Razor Pages behind it. (Basically for me, I don't want Blazor per-se but I want client-side C#)

Currently with Blazor, it seems the idea isn't to gel with Razor Pages but be its own thing. There is a server-side component and a client-side component (WASM). The server-side one seems strange to me (to be honest) but is currently available for use. The client-side one is still under development as far as I know.

I'd say it is definitely worth knowing more about and keeping an eye on. If you like working on cutting edge, definitely mess around with it.

EDIT: To clarify something - so Blazor uses Razor but itself is its own thing. Razor is the syntax. When I say Razor Pages, that is its own thing that also uses Razor syntax.
