Google Charts is easy to use and offers a large variety of different types of graphs. But creating custom graphs with specific design requirements is not an easy task while using Google Charts. Google Charts also does not provide offline access for its charts.
Plotly.js is a high-level, declarative charting library and ships with over 40 chart types, including 3D charts, statistical graphs, and SVG maps. It is built on top of d3.js and stack.gl.
Plotly is a very rich library and has outstanding documentation, including a tutorial for each of the chart types. Plotly can render highly dynamic and interactive plots but its library is a bit heavy and can reduce the load speed of your web application.
Chart.js is a fairly light library and also has an option for custom plugins which makes it highly customizable.
