On your stats, that you have suggested , PHP undoubtly wins, and since Laravel is very new as a framework of PHP, it has lower usage number. Where ASP.NET places second directly, since C# directly can't be used for web-stacks. And also the statistic, includes websites of 90s, 20s, but the suggestion I need, the most demanded one in 21s.

Thanks a lot for the statistics, it made be very proud to be a PHP dev :)

If you prefer PHP then pursue PHP. I worked in Java for a while and for whatever reason (Eclipse) did not enjoy it so I learned VB6 and then VB.NET and then C# and moved in that direction. I later got deep into large javascript projects and when typescript came out I was an early adopter because it was more fun. I am now looking closely at Svelte and Sapper. They are fun and so I will learn them and see where it goes. I will say that I really enjoy C# and .NET (no core experience) and think you could learn the basics in a couple weeks. The runtime is huge, though. PHP probably requires more discipline to build large projects but I do not actually know that to be true.
