Is there a fundamental difference between await xyz and xyz.Result ?

Considering the following locator: var button = page.Locator("button.some_class");

And two ways of getting the count of this locator: int count = button.CountAsync().Result; int count = await button.CountAsync();

The result is the same. So that leaves the question when to use which alternative? Hope to get some insight.... With Regards, Aad Slingerland.

This thread is trying to answer question "What is the difference between using .Result and await with asynchronous methods and when should each be used?"

Effectively, one is synchronous one is async...
