  • Google Charts is free so a terrific tool for universities and students
  • Provides new users that need charts an inventory and gallery of potential charts and types to visualize data
  • The software is useful to add charts and data for websites with limited effort but with success
  • Using the javascript seems intimidately too technical
  • By making it free, it sort of makes the user think they are missing something
  • Limited technical support, kind of have to figure it out

  • The payload for Google Charts is only 43kb, much smaller than Chart.js.
  • Easy to use.
  • Easy to pick up if you've used Excel.
  • Customizing them visually is hard. You basically get the Google color palette.
  • Not easily integrated into other frameworks.
