Substantial Security Enhancements

New Composer Plugin
The new Composer Plugin for Magento Open Source will minimize a security vulnerability known as dependency confusion. The plugin will perform integrity checks during installation.
This includes enhanced functionality within the Customer Account, Catalog, Cart & Checkout and Promotions to name a few!
PayPal Pay Later
Offering a “buy now, pay later” service to your customers can help increase sales. Magento 2.4.3 now supports Paypal Pay Later allowing customers to pay for their order in bi-weekly installments rather than at the time of purchase.
The improvements decrease indexation time for Product Price and Catalog Rule indexers. It also exclude a website from a customer group or shared catalog, which reduces the number of records for indexing and improves indexing times.
The Page Builder extension is now the default content editing tool for Adobe Commerce 2.4.3 and Magento Open Source 2.4.3. If required, it can replace the WYSIWYG editor with any third-party module.
Page Builder replaces the TinyMCE editor in the following Admin areas:
All the content created in TinyMCE has been migrated into Page Builder as HTML.
