SignalR vs WebRTC: What are the differences?

What is SignalR? A new library for ASP.NET developers that makes developing real-time web functionality easy. SignalR allows bi-directional communication between server and client. Servers can now push content to connected clients instantly as it becomes available. SignalR supports Web Sockets, and falls back to other compatible techniques for older browsers. SignalR includes APIs for connection management (for instance, connect and disconnect events), grouping connections, and authorization.

What is WebRTC? *A free, open project that provides browsers and mobile applications with Real-Time Communications *. It is a free, open project that enables web browsers with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple JavaScript APIs. The WebRTC components have been optimized to best serve this purpose.

SignalR and WebRTC are primarily classified as "Realtime Backend / API" and "Web and Video Conferencing" tools respectively.

SignalR is an open source tool with 7.75K GitHub stars and 2.19K GitHub forks. Here's a link to SignalR's open source repository on GitHub.
