The most commonly used Drupal 7 features are being added into Backdrop core.

Backdrop hopes to be a complete and feature-rich product, right out of the box. Many features that are used by the majority of websites have been moved into Backdrop core. Below you'll find a list of contributed modules that are no longer necessary to add to a Backdrop site. Some of these modules have been moved directly into core, some have been integrated into existing core modules, and still others have been reworked or rewritten with Backdrop's philosophy in mind -- usually to address performance or usability issues.
