Great article and advice Anjali. Unfortunately, not all of the "not nitsan" extensions are up to date so they will work seamlessly with the newest TYPO3 10.4.4/5 version. At least I get a message, stating that the plugin could render my TYPO3 installation useless and if I continue with the installation, I would do it on my own risk. Therefore I skipped them for now, but definitely would like to install them later.
