    I am a bit critical on this one. MVC was a step in a positive direction away from the early to mid 2000’s where Microsoft Web Forms and the Ajax Toolkit was almost standard in web development.

    In an effort to dumb down web development for developers, they made Web Forms, where you can drag and drop elements, and huge states would be managed in the html, and all the html would be messed up, rendering much Javascript nonfunctional. Then they come up with the Ajax Toolkit, again making a dumbed down “toolkit” to make web pages more interactive and dynamic. The idea being “hey, you don’t need to learn javascript or understand ajax, just use our toolkit”. MVC was a move in the right direction.

    Is Blazor another attempt to “dumb down” web development for developers? It’s essentially just using ajax and javascript to modify and load different elements of a page without loading an entire new page. Will this Blazor be the Web-Forms of the 2000’s ?

    Should anyone even bother to learn and use Blazor? What’s your opinion?

    Blazor is the framework to write the SPA(Single Page Application) using HTML, CSS and C# code with lesser use of JavaScript.

    Please refer to the following doc for more information on Blazor:
