Remarks

Each call to CreateClient(String) is guaranteed to return a new HttpClient instance. Callers may cache the returned HttpClient instance indefinitely or surround its use in a using block to dispose it when desired.

The default IHttpClientFactory implementation may cache the underlying HttpMessageHandler instances to improve performance.

Callers are also free to mutate the returned HttpClient instance's public properties as desired.
