In what could be a turning point for web development, Microsoft’s ASP.Net team has launched an experimental web UI framework, called Blazor, that runs .Net in the browser via the WebAssembly portable code format.

Blazor is intended to simplify the building of fast, single-page .Net browser apps. While Blazor does use web technologies such as CSS and HTML, it uses the C# language and the Razor syntax instead of JavaScript to build a composable web UI. By providing a size- and load-time-efficient format for compilation to the web, WebAssembly lets .Net be run in the browser. Normal .Net assemblies run through a WebAssembly-based runtime. WebAsembly is supported by all major browsers and  lets compiled code run at native speeds.
