The aspx file extension is associated with ASP.NET dynamic web pages, also known as web forms, based on the Microsoft ASP.NET programming framework.

Internet servers generate these pages. The ASP.NET code is compiled and interpreted by the server, then sent to a user web browser and displayed as a web page.

ASP.NET pages are the primary building block for web application development. The Web forms are contained in files with the .aspx file extension. These files typically contain static (X)HTML markup and markup defining server-side Web Controls and User Controls where the developers place all the required static and dynamic content for the web page.

The native application that uses ASPX script files is the ASP.NET server (mainly Microsoft IIS - Internet Information Services).

ASPX script files can be written in Microsoft Visual Studio, WebMatrix, or other development tools, and web pages that are written in ASP.NET and using ASP.NET can be viewed in any Internet browser such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, or Safari.
