No :)

You can choose what kind of application you want to make. A console-application, a web-application or windows-application ...

All ASP.Net applications are browser based. But .Net applications in general don't have to be.

I have created a browser-based ASP.NET application written in c#, using Visual Studio.

In my resume, is it correct to call it just a "C# .NET application", or should I say "browser-based C# .NET application", or "browser-based ASP.NET application written in C#" ?

Thanks!

I would call it an ASP.Net application and mention that it was developed in C#.

The fact it is ASP.Net says it is a web application and browser based, which is a given. The choice of languages you could have written t using is a bit broader, so you need to mention specifically which language you used.

Rather, are all "ASP.NET applications written in c#", "C#.NET" applications?

No. C# is a language, it can be used to create various different types of applications.

ASP.Net is a server technology that specifically runs browser based applications served from a web server. The general term ".Net" refers to the .Net Framework which is a set of base class libraries and a runtime (called the CLR).

A ".Net Application" is any application that runs under the .Net CLR runtime. An "ASP.Net" application is specifically a brower-based application that runs under the .Net CLR.

In that case, all "ASP.NET applications written in c#" are "C#.NET" applications right?

Technically, yes. But if you are putting it on your CV/Resume then you need to make the distinction as to what type of application it was.
