Why haven't you mentioned Drupal 9? I will be adding this, but as of August 2021, this site you are reading is the only Drupal site of mine I've been able to upgrade to D9, so although you can check D9 compatibility status of all modules (use upgrade_status, it's superb) I can't speak from personal experience about any of them.

"Essential"

Framework for using (many) different types of captchas on forms such as user_registration.
e.g. try 'reCAPTCHA' which is Google's "I am not a robot" captcha.  Personal experience is that's much better at preventing spam than the standard "image" one.

Tested with D7.
