Decisions about Google Analytics

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Google Analytics in their tech stack.

I'm looking to switch from Google Analytics to other more privacy compliant analytics tools. My ideal tool would have the basics (visits, pageviews, duration, rebound rate, source/medium) and more: breakdown by page, conversion goals, campaigns set-up... But I'm a bit confused by the different choices, and I would greatly appreciate any feedback ;)
