I have exactly the same hesitations.

I also waited two years for Silverlight to stabilize, and jumped in, and wrote four applications that I now have to replace before the end of life for Silverlight.

My understanding is that Blazor is different in that it is actually compliant with a web standard that is being supported in all browsers, including Safari.

So what will happen is that everyone will adopt this new standard and support it up until Microsoft begins to dominate in the space at which point Java fanbois will tell managers to go with Java based solutions because... Java isn't Microsoft and even though every machine in the organization runs on Windows 10, the servers are all Windows, and everyone uses Office and Exchange - we'll adopt some application that uses Oracle (worst GUI ever) and a patchwork of Java frameworks, libraries, and pre-packaged nightmares and string it all together into a big ball of sh*t because if it is elegant and easy then it isn't IT.

At least that is how we do stuff where I work.
