Fully Reactive Pagination
Paginating over large datasets is tricky when the data is changing. Naive approaches result in missing or duplicated data. The trick is to rewrite limit queries (fetch 5 items) into range queries (fetch between cursors). Convex handles this automatically!

Convex vs. Firebase
On Cloud Firestore, you'll have to do some acrobatics to integrate with React and listen for realtime updates. Down the road, you'll find your app full of slow loading experiences from request waterfalls and your database full of half-committed mutations.
