Oops! I see now that I didn't test deleting anything - I added the firebase rules after everything worked.
Well, netlify is frontend only, whereas heroku could host your API (if you needed one). I was ok with heroku for a while, but I moved off of it in favor of hosting myself (w/ Dokku). I've never hosted the actual web app there too - always somewhere separate like github pages or netlify.
That said, though, I really like netlify! Their service is top notch - it has a whole host of features that I don't use now, but want to someday. Probably my favorite feature is live previewing of deploys when you make a pull request.
