I find that Google Charts is great when I need simple charts. High quality, very good browser support, good docs, and well-maintained.

Google Charts got a big update a couple weeks ago, the previous version are being deprecated and all charts are now rendered using HTML5 techniques, most of the time SVG. The protocol also got a big update and fixed a lot of bugs that made my life somewhat miserable weeks ago. Now it also supports mixed charts (bars and lines), so I don't need flot anymore. My advice is that if you're planning to draw only a couple of charts and flotr2 does the work, go with it. It's easier to work with and lighter. If you're building something that depends on charts a lot go with Google Charts. The protocol will come handy, and it has some helpers to connect to backend data sources. It has Google Spreadsheets built in.
